Everton have pledged to donate £200, 000 pounds to five-year-old Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery in his battle against cancer, the Merseyside club said.
Lowery was just two when he was first diagnosed with the life-threatening illness. His parents have launched a fundraising campaign for his treatment in the United States which would cost 700 000 pounds.
“Everton Football Club has pledged a donation of 200 000 pounds to support Bradley Lowery in his brave battle,” the club said in a statement on their website (www.evertonfc.com).
“We wish Bradley every success and he has the love and support of every Evertonian.”
Everton, who secured a 3-0 win at Sunderland on Monday, host Middlesbrough on Saturday.
