New York’s Columbia University offering to treat baby
Charlie Gard’s desperate case for release from a London hospital before losing life-support was again made in the British parliament today, as seen in video provided by the Mirror. The response of the British Prime Minister was not encouraging.
MP Seema Malhotra addressed Prime Minister Theresa May on behalf of west London constituents Chris Gard and Connie Yates. The couple has sought since January to get their seriously declining baby boy to the United States to try an experimental oral medication.
Eleven-month-old Charlie has a rare and debilitating chromosomal condition in which his cells cannot replenish essential energy. A natural compound, orally administered, has shown some success as a treatment in the United States.
