Chris Gard and Connie Yates vow to keep the memory of their son alive – his story touched millions and reached as far the White House and the Vatican
When he was just eight weeks old, Charlie Gard was taken to hospital after losing weight. His parents, Chris Gard, a postman, and Connie Yates, from Bedfont, west London, would later say: “None of us have been anywhere near home since.”
Charlie died on Friday after he was moved to a specialist children’s hospice. It came days after his parents ended their long-running and intensely fraught legal battle to save him.
