Baloons released to honor Alfie Evans

Baloons released to honor Alfie Evans

Since that time, Alfie's parents have been battling the British courts and medical professionals to save the life of their innocent baby boy.

February 5: Mr Evans tells the court Alfie "looks me in the eye" and wants his help.

There is concern that the hospital contributed to his death.

Aviv focuses on the Kafkaesque odyssey of Julie Belshe, a mother of three who spent years extracting her parents from the talons of a woman, April Parks, who was later indicted on charges of perjury and theft.

Earlier this month, Thomas Evans met with Pope Francis in Rome and asked the pontiff to see his son in Liverpool. Courts often intervene when parents and doctors disagree over the treatment of a child, whose rights usually take precedence over the parent's right to decide what's best; this is all indicated under the British Law. The statement from Alfie's father was surprising given the animosity that had developed between the Evans family and the hospital.

Alfie was taken off life support on Monday, and an appeals court upheld a previous decision barring the family from taking the child overseas days later despite his having been granted Italian citizenship to ease the process.

Supporters of the parents staged angry protests regularly outside the hospital, at times trying to storm its entrance. Police officers blocked the entrance as dozens of people charged at the doors.

He finished his OSU career with 4,462 receiving yards, most in Cowboy history. The Pittsburgh Steelers called Washington's name with the 60th pick.

This occurred despite Italy granting Alfie citizenship so that he could arrive in the country and receive medical care. "The Italian government hopes that in this way, being an Italian citizen will enable the immediate transfer of the child to Italy". On Wednesday, his parents lost their final court battle.

Alfie tragically passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, his father confirmed. It's actually come to the point where his mum is asleep next to him. "She feels comfortable with him".

On Saturday morning, Kate Evans broke the news on the Alfie's Army Facebook page, saying: Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am.

Alder Hey children's hospital posted a statement on their website saying: "All of us feel deeply for Alfie, Kate, Tom and his whole family and our thoughts are with them".

Alfie Evans, a 23-month-old boy terminally ill with a degenerative brain disease, died five days after he was taken off life support due to a court ruling. "Thankyou everyone for all your support", the post said. Evans had pledged to work with doctors to give his son "dignity and comfort", as he called for a truce in the divisive case.
