The world is a lesser place without you. The world is a lesser place without the children who have gone too soon.
Your smile, your love, your charisma banished from this world forever. Your future, their future, our future changed forever.
Bradley, thank you for showing the world how brave, heroic and strong children with cancer have to be. I wish you didn’t have to. I wish you didn’t have to go.
There are children now receiving barbaric but life-saving treatments for a variety of cancers. Some work, many don’t. Some survive, many don’t. It hurts. It hurts emotionally and physically. It hurts the child, the siblings, the parents, the grandparents, the uncles, the aunties, the cousins, the friends, the teachers, the coaches, the community – the hurt is timeless and spaceless. It is a constant.
Bradley, you are no longer suffering which is the only good thing I can say. Your bravery and smile will live on forever and remind us of all the children whose lives have been taken too soon.
You will always be part of our story.
All our love,
