    Charlie Gard,who suffered from a rare genetic disease, mitochondrial depletion syndrome, died Friday,in a hospice, and a day after a judge ordered that he be taken to a hospice for his final hours.


    Charlie,  who was 11 months , was one week before  his first birthday, his a rare genetic disease left him brain damaged and unable to move his limbs or breathe unaided.

    The infant's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates said in a statement,"Our beautiful little boy has gone, we're so proud of him,", they raised more than ($1.7 million) to bring him to the U.S. for the experimental treatment therapy they believed could prolong his life ,but Charlie's doctors opposed the idea, saying itwouldn't help and might cause him to suffer.

    This battle ,which has drawn sympathy and support from Pope Francis and President Trump, with hospitals in Rome and New York ,British courts and the European Court of Human Rights all sided with the hospital in its bid to remove life support and allow Charlie to die naturally.
