The little boy’s parents had requested that Charlie could be allowed to die at home, but sadly their final wish was denied and the little boy died in a hospice.

Charlie Gard, who became the subject of a bitter dispute between his parents and doctors over whether he should be taken to the United States for experimental treatment, has passed away just days before his first birthday.

His mother Connie Yates said: “Our beautiful little boy has gone, we are so proud of you Charlie”, according to Daily Mail.

The 11-month-old baby suffered from an extremely rare genetic condition causing progressive brain damage and muscle weakness, and his parents’ long struggle to save him drew an international outpouring of sympathy.

Reluctantly, his parents withdrew their battle for their son’s life from court, after being repeatedly refused the right to take him to the US for experimental treatment.

The west London couple abandoned their legal fight on Monday after concluding Charlie had deteriorated to the “point of no return”.
