Victoria Butler-Cole is representing Charlie Gard, who’s parents are urging a High Court Judge to allow their son to undergo experience treatment in the US.
Specialists say eight-month-old Charlie Gard, who suffers from a rare genetic condition, is largely unable to move and has significant irreversible brain damage.
Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital think it is time to stop providing life-support treatment and moved to a palliative care regime
Charlie’s mother Connie Yates has said “Charlie has one shot, one chance of life,” she said. “Without this treatment, Charlie’s only alternative is death.”
A decision over whether to turn off Charlie’s life support machines is being considered by the Family Division of the High Court.
Judge Mr Justice Francis said he aimed to announce his decision on Tuesday.
