Tomorrow the Court of Appeal will hear fresh evidence suggesting that pioneering treatment for Charlie Gard, an 11 month old baby with a rare genetic condition, could improve his quality of life.
Charlie’s parents hope to convince the court that his life support should not be switched off and that he should be allowed to have treatment, however they are distraught at being given only 48 hours to gather the evidence.
They have until 2pm today.
The hearing tomorrow will determine whether Charlie’s life support will be turned off, or whether he will be able to have the treatment his parents have been campaigning for.
As the relationship between Charlie’s parents and Great Ormond Street has almost deteriorated completely, other hospitals have allegedly been approached to take Charlie, but anxieties over the current legal battle have left Charlie without any options.
We’ll keep you posted.
