Hospital applies for new hearing in Charlie Gard saga

The parents of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard have vowed "if he's still fighting, we're still fighting" as they delivered a 35,000 signature petition to Great Ormond Street Hospital calling for him to be allowed to travel overseas for treatment.

Determined to treat their son in the United States, Connie Yates, and Chris gard have brought the matter up before the European Court of human rights, which ruled in favour of the hospital.

Mahoney said the incident "continues to show Great Ormond Street Hospital's disregard for the wishes of Charlie's parents".

The hospital is bound by the ruling which expressly forbids it from transferring Charlie anywhere for the suggested experimental treatment, nucleoside therapy.

"If he's still fighting, we're still fighting", she said.

Support for sick British infant Charlie Gard and his parents has been flooding in from all across the world. At one point, the baby's father, Chris Gard, yelled at a barrister representing the hospital: "When are you going to start telling the truth?"

"Two global hospitals and their researchers have told us in the last 24 hours that they have new evidence about experimental treatment proposed by them".

They were granted "a few more days" with their terminally ill son after the Great Ormond Street Hospital planned to remove Charlie from life support on June 30.

Additionally, Justice Nicholas Francis of the Family Division of the High Court of Justice ruled in April that withdrawing life support was in the boy's best interest.

British doctors insist experimental therapies offered in the U.S. won't help the 11 month old.

How to watch Portugal vs. Chile
I am thankful for Cristiano Ronaldo , and he deserves all my respect". "And I'm sure it's going to be hard for Portugal as well". He's young as well and I think he's got a really bright future ahead of him", said Mustafi.

Connie Yates acknowledged that although the probability was slight, she said Charlie had a "chance to get better", adding: "I would not be able to sit there and watch my son suffer and be in pain".

His mum, Connie Yates, said experimental United States drugs had been backed by top medics.

She said she hoped the judge would take into account new evidence as when the decision was made previously, his chance was rated at being close to 0 percent but now this has been increased to 10 percent.

"I am holding my hands up, I say my prayers over my son every night and I am thankful that he is on that medication".

The 11-month-old was born with a rare inherited mitochondrial disease that left him unable to move his limbs or breathe without a respirator.

That ruling was preceded by a series of legal attempts by the young couple, who have tried to make their cases to judges in the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court in London.

Doctors there believe Gard's brain damage is "severe and irreversible" and have said the baby may be suffering, in contradiction to the parents' views.

Equally as important, the Vatican followed up with concrete action: Bambino Gesu, the Vatican's own hospital, offered to take Charlie and care for him, for free.

They said there was a "good prospect" of further evidence producing a different result.

One need only be human to feel compassion for the extraordinarily hard and painful burden being endured by terminally ill 11-month-old in the UK Charlie Gard's parents.
