It’s been one year since the world lost one of its smallest, and smiliest, superheroes.

Little Bradley Lowery slipped away 12 months ago, on July 7, 2017.

The world got caught up in his brave fight against terminal neuroblastoma cancer, and watched on as the six-year-old made once-in-a-lifetime memories with his family and friends.

His trademark thumbs up and beaming smile became a symbol of hope for Bradley’s thousands of supporters, and his touching journey affected all of us.
