I have been so moved by this.   I so hope they can take Charlie home for his last hours.   Just sending love and strength to his parents and little tiny Charlie.   Is there a God ?

It does seem strange to me that the parents are being denied the chance to take him to America; they have the money to do so - surely they should be allowed to have their wish.

I agree.

The Courts believe he is in pain but how do they know that ? He looks very peaceful in the photo.

What truth there is here I don't know as the report originated in The Sun.

Is there hope yet?   Untested experimental treatment that may help.

Charlie Gard: Great Ormond Street Hospital applies for new hearing

Charlie Gard has been in intensive care since October

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has applied for a fresh hearing in the case of Charlie Gard following claims of "new evidence relating to potential treatment for his condition".

Seven medical experts wrote a letter to the hospital suggesting unpublished data could help cure the 11-month-old's brain damage.

Remember this little boy?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-32013634

All the parents wanted was to try a treatment abroad to try and give their little boy a chance.

They were arrested and held in prison.

The little boy had his treatment and is now in remission it seems.

The doctors in UK should hang their heads in shame, if they had their way he would have died.

And note this, you think your children belong to you, they don't, they belong to the state, as we've seen in these cases.
