Bradley Scott has terminal cancer and doctors had said this weekend was his last alive. The five-year old boy, a staunch Sunderland FC fan, has been a darling to many football fans ever since his story broke out to the public.

He has been undergoing pioneering antibody treatment for neuroblastoma and some football clubs (Everton, Man City and Sunderland) together with other stakeholders came together to pledge $200,000.

Last Saturday, he slept in the arms of Sunderland striker Jermaine Defoe, who he considers his idol.
