Charlie Gard’s Parents Deliver Petition

Jul 10, 2017

The parents of Charlie Gard delivered a petition to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital. The more than 350,000 petitioners asked that Charlie be taken to the United States to undergo experimental treatment. According to Connie Yates and Chris Gard, the parents of Charlie, seven doctors from around the world believe that the experimental treatment might be able to help their child. Chris Gard said that his son should have had the treatment a long time ago. On Monday there will be a court hearing to determine if Charlie can be permitted to undergo the treatment. The parents have raised about £1.3 million pounds so their child can undergo the treatment. However the government run healthcare system in Britain is refusing to allow the parents to fly their child to the United States.
