Charlie Gard's dad yells, mom weeps after brain scan called 'sad'

Protesters who want critically ill British baby Charlie Gard to receive an experimental treatment held a rally and prayer vigil Sunday, and hospital officials said they have received death threats in the case. I would urge Great Ormond Street to go public and explain what these threats are.

"The GOSH community has been subjected to a shocking and disgraceful tide of hostility and disturbance".

Mr Gard added: "We have always acted in Charlie's best interests and we have never slated gosh publicly, in fact we have been grateful to the staff for their care despite some conflicting issues".

Charlie was born with a rare genetic disorder, a form of mitochondrial disease, which causes progressive muscle wasting and brain damage.

A judge at the High Court has been hearing evidence about the potential of an experimental treatment that is claimed could help the child.

Cavs looking to sign Derrick Rose
Ring-chasing is never completely off the table, but Rose would be doing so while earning the lowest salary of his career. With an already loaded roster of point guards, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Rose to join the Bulls.

Gard's parents are fighting to get more medical care but Great Ormond Street Hospital officials say the experimental treatment will only cause the 11-month-old more suffering.

He said the family had publicly praised staff at the hospital.

Charlie's parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, are battling with the hospital for the right to take their desperately sick little boy to the USA for pioneering treatment, which the hospital opposes because they believe it will only prolong his suffering.

She has condemned those who have carried out the abuse as the hospital, saying that though emotions over the case of baby Gard are running high it can be "no excuse" for attacking staff who devote their lives to ill children.

"We recognise the tireless advocacy of Charlie's loving parents and the natural sympathy people feel with his situation".

Jordan has repeatedly appealed to Israel to remove the metal detectors and thousands of Jordanians protested in Amman on Friday. The compound, which houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque, is the third holiest site in Islam.

The hospital have confirmed that the police had been called to investigate the threats and "unacceptable" harassment of it's staff. "There is no place for this abuse and it has to stop".

Doctors at GOSH have said there is no realistic prospect of improvement and Charlie should be allowed to die with dignity.

On Monday and Tuesday, Dr. Michio Hirano, a neurologist from New York's Columbia University Medical Center, met with doctors caring for Charlie and other experts and evaluated the boy in London.

He has offered to provide treatment which may improve the boy's condition.

Friday's hearing was the first time his parents were told about the latest results in the crucial test of Charlie's brain function.
