Charlie Gard's parents 'looking forward' to court return

Charlie Gard's parents 'looking forward' to court return

"Charlie's parents look forward to new evidence being heard before the High Court this Thursday the 13th of July that will result in Charlie's parents taking him to either the United States of America or to Italy for groundbreaking treatment". Connie said: "There's nothing to lose and he deserves a chance".

Understandably, if not entirely rationally, Charlie's parents are not prepared to surrender. However, parents do not have the absolute right to make decisions for their children in the United Kingdom, and "it is normal for the courts to intervene when parents and doctors disagree on the treatment of a child", ABC News reports.

While he agreed that a 10 percent chance of survival was significant, Francis said that evidence must be supplied before Thursday's hearing which could decide Charlie's fate.

[D] octors and the judiciary have said that, not only is there no hope, but rather than release Charlie to the care of his parents, they have also omnisciently made a decision to literally hold him hostage - insisting not only that Charlie must die but that he also must be in their "care" when he does. The Court had held that keeping her alive would only prolong her suffering, with no hope of recovery. Surely, they love their child no less than I love mine; maybe they are just fiercer fighters.

It said the experimental treatment has never been used on patients with Charlie's condition.

But doctors say Charlie's brain is not growing, and a 17-day bout of seizures earlier this year had caused "severe and irreversible" damage.

Connie and Chris shared a picture of Charlie with his eyes open during a family picnic last month - challenging doctors' claims he can not consistently open his eyes.

"The life and death struggle facing Charlie's parents could happen to anyone, which is why we are fighting alongside them for their right to determine their son's welfare". [Great Ormond Street Hospital] are anxious that damage is being done to Charlie.

Well-wishers are adding cash to a fund launched to cover the cost of foreign treatment for terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard as his parents prepare for another legal battle with doctors at the UK's most famous children's hospital.

They also want him to be moved to another hospital, but the court reportedly heard that no others had yet agreed to take him.

She said: "It was incredible".

Great Ormond Street insists its view that Charlie's life-support should be switched off "is not an issue about money or resources, but absolutely about what is right for Charlie".

"This is about Charlie and giving him the chance he needs".
