US doctor’s RUSH to save Charlie Gard! Time is running out!

By

Just announced, US doctor is flying to ENGLAND to access young Charlie Gard.

US goes to England…this case unfortunately points out the flaws in a single-payer health care system.

The heartbreaking saga of Charlie Gard, a terminally ill 11-month-old boy in a London hospital.

Charlie has an extremely rare genetic condition that experts agree is incurable. His parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, want to take him to the United States for an experimental treatment they believe could prolong his life. They have raised about $1.7 million to do so, and have found an American hospital willing to provide the therapy.

BUT Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie has been receiving treatment since October, has decided that withdrawing life support is the only reasonable and humane option, and REFUSES to release Charlie to his parents’ custody. The child cannot hear, see, move, or breathe on his own, suffers frequent seizures, and has irreversible brain damage at the cellular level. Even the American neurologist working with the family has conceded the treatment is unlikely to improve his condition.

According to Fox News:  “An American doctor will head to the IK to examine the 11-month old boy suffering from a rare genetic disorder.

High Court Judge Nicholas Francis said Friday that he was “open-minded about the evidence” to come after the visit of Dr. Michio Hirano of Columbia University.”
