‘Brave little boy’ Nate Gidman loses battle with brain tumour

Nate Gidman, a brave little boy who was taken into the hearts Wirral residents as he battled a brain tumour has sadly died during the early hours of this morning.

In a message on Twitter, Nate’s dad issued the following statement: “It is with a profound sadness that I say that at 3:11 this morning our Nate died.

“As unexpected this soon, it was peaceful and both me and mum where there. Your love has been phenomenal. We love you with all our hearts, sleep well and dream big son.”

A statement on Tranmere Rovers’ website reads: “Nate’s life may have been cruelly cut short but he packed more love, fun and memories into 5 brief years than many experience in their lifetime, and whilst that is primarily down to the incredible love and dedication shown by his parents, Phil and Nicola, it was truly heartwarming to see the SWA embrace the family and rally round to help make sure his last months were as fun-packed as possible.

“We hope we all helped to make memories for the family that will help sustain them through these dark times, and endure forever.

“Rest easy, Nate. We won’t forget our little super hero.”

There will be a collection in Nate’s honour at tomorrow night’s game at Prenton Park to raise funds for The Children’s Brain Tumour Research Fund.
