Five-year-old Bradley Lowery "absolutely loved" receiving thousands of Christmas cards, according to Lynn Murphy from the Bradley Lowery's Fight campaign.
She told ITV News, "He absolutely loved it. He spent ages opening the cards and the presents that he had, running around, absolutely fantastic."
Thousands of Newcastle fans also gave Bradley, a Sunderland fan, a standing ovation following the fifth minute of their game against Birmingham. Today he found out he will be mascot at the Mackems fixture with Chelsea on Wednesday night at the Stadium of Light.

Bradley's parents - Carl and Gemma - have said his wish is to have as many Christmas cards as possible and say they are OK with their address being given out.
They are asking for all cards to be delivered to 5 Attlee Avenue, Blackhall Rocks, Hartlepool TS27 4BY.
The terminally ill 5-year-old posted a video on Facebook thanking everyone for the cards and presents he has received so far.

A Newcastle United fan page is supporting terminally ill Bradley Lowery who is a Sunderland fan.
The page organiser, Samantha Rees, says 'rivalry does not come into' it and she'd like to see fans clap in the 5th minute of the upcoming game to support Bradley.
"When I saw the news about Bradley yesterday I was moved to tears. Such a young and beautiful boy. This page has been campaigning for 5th minute applause and singing his name. I'm a parent myself and hope that Bradley's family will take some comfort that we are all thinking of them. Football rivalry doesn't even come into it."
