A FORMER Bradford City goalkeeper and his wife have thanked well-wishers and donators after their son's shocking cancer diagnosis.

Jude, the three-year-old son of ex-City loanee Arron Jameson, who had a brief spell with the Bantams back in 2014, was diagnosed with cancer (neuroblastoma) earlier this year.

Little Jude is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Sheffield Children's Hospital, with daily injections to support his blood counts.

Jude’s family and friends have devoted themselves to supporting The Children’s Hospital Charity’s appeal to build a new cancer and leukaemia ward.

So far, a football tournament held in Jude’s honour has raised £605, while a friend has raised almost £1,000 with a 30-day fitness challenge.

Another organised a fundraiser just a week before giving birth to raise £257.

A charity raffle is now also underway, having raised an incredible almost £3,000 so far.

Highlights include signed shirts from Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United, a Sheffield FC away kit, vouchers for bars and award-winning restaurants, a Made in Sheffield steel bracelet and even a virtual personal training session with a film star.
