Great Ormond Street, the hospital in question, is a world leader in treating children's illnesses including cancer. It is very unlikely he would survive a move.

 

Why is this international outpouring of support not for Bradley Lowery, the six-year-old with neuroblastoma, where an entire world coming together might save him?
