Gard was born on August 4, 2016 with a rare form of mitochondrial disease that causes progressive muscle weakness, including in key organs such as the heart.
He was admitted to hospital at eight weeks old and his condition progressively deteriorated.
Gard’s parents fought a five-month legal battle for him to be taken to the United States for experimental treatment.
They lost a series of appeals in British courts and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
Their campaign led to offers of help from the United States and the Vatican, leading the hospital to ask the courts for a final assessment of any new evidence.
In the end, the parents realized their legal battle was of no good to the beloved child and decided to let him go.
Sleep well baby Charlie!
