Seven-year-old Salvador loses brave fight against cancer

Today (Thursday) brave seven-year-old Salvador Rodrigues Lopes is being buried in Lagos cemetery, his battle against glioblastoma intramedular level 4 finally over.

The “champion” as he has become known in this epic struggle “lost the last game that had been wearing him out day after day” earlier this week, explains an emotion-filled Facebook post.

The community of Odiaxere had been behind efforts by Salvador’s parents to raise funds for their son to be treated abroad, as Portugal viewed his cancer as incurable.

Various fund-raising efforts were organised, for which Salvador’s parents have said they are eternally grateful.
