BREAKING: Charlie Gard’s Parents End Legal Battle


This heartbreaking update leaves only our prayers.

Researching Reform

A lawyer for Charlie’s parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, has told the High Court that “Time has run out” for their 11 month old son.

Lawyers for the parents withdrew the family’s application to travel to America for pioneering treatment after Dr Michio Hirano, the neurologist who developed the therapy, said he was no longer willing to offer Charlie the experimental treatment after reviewing results of a new MRI scan last week.

The parents will now use the funds raised for their campaign to create a foundation so that Charlie’s voice “continues to be heard.”

Our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies go out to Charlie’s family and to all those who felt connected to Charlie. It is a terrible loss for all of us. We wish Connie and Chris much strength, hope and courage. We all stand with you.
