It was a long big battle of his parents with the authorities for his life and even President Donald Trump promised help and Pope Francis sustained his case as a human duty to preserve life. Now, the U.S. Congress passed an amendment “that grants permanent resident status to Charlie Gard and family so Charlie can get the medical treatment he needs.” When he will be in the United States he will receive the experimental nucleoside therapy which previously had promising results.
Charlie and his parents
An American doctor flew to London this week to examine the critically ill baby as part of a last-ditch attempt to persuade a High Court judge the treatment stands a chance of working. Charlie has a faulty RRM2B gene, which affects the cells responsible for energy production and respiration, leaving him unable to move or breath without a ventilator. The American specialist told the High Court nucleoside therapy has a 10 per cent chance of improving Charlie’s condition, adding his research “clearly indicates” it reduces muscle weakness in patients with a similar genetic disorder. Doctors of the British hospital believe however the solution proposed in America is “all very theoretical.” But Charlie Gard may have a chance and is important how his case determined the most important people on the Earth to take action helping him.
