11-month-old Charlie could lose life support any day now due to the European Court of Human Rights’ decision “in Charlie’s best interests.” Shortly after his birth, Charlie was diagnosed with infantile-onset encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (MDDS). The rare genetic condition and brain damage has left Charlie deaf and blind, subject to seizures and unable to move his limbs or breathe on his own.
After his doctors suggested removing Charlie’s ventilator, parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates sought legal permission to bring their baby to the U.S. for experimental therapy. But court after court sided with Charlie’s doctors at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital. And, last week, the parents lost their final legal appeal, despite raising £1.3 million on a crowdfunding site to pay for Charlie’s treatment.
Form her account, Cher followed up with other tweets in support of little Charlie.
If His Parents Want 2 Take The Chance,They’ll Fight W/Their Last Breath 2Save Charlie,” she added. “God willing theres SOME good we,[America] can do. we can [pray].”
