GETTYAlfie's parents hope their tot will finally come home

"My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30", his father, Thomas Evans, shared on Facebook early Saturday morning.

Purple and blue balloons scattered across the cloudy sky of Liverpool on Saturday as people chanted "Alfie, Alfie, AlfIe". Thankyou everyone for all your support.

If an agreement can not be reached between the parents and doctors, "a court should be asked to make a declaration about whether the provision of life-sustaining treatment would benefit the child".

"And that was very troubling; it was distressing, and that is something that we have to address in British society", Williams continued. Nobody could have fought a tougher battle for Alfie.


Kate and Tom Evans.

Tom Evans said his 23-month-old son, Alfie, survived for six hours with no assistance, and that doctors are now providing oxygen and hydration.

All of us feel deeply for Alfie, Kate, Tom and his whole family and our thoughts are with them.

Alfie's fight for treatment drew support from around the world, including from Pope Francis.


Pope Francis said on Twitter: "I renew my appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted". "Let us pray that every sick person might always be respected in their dignity and cared for in a manner adapted to their condition, with the concordant input of their families and loved ones, of the doctors and of other health-care workers, with great respect for life", he said during his Sunday remarks on April 15, after mentioning "little Alfie Evans". After the ruling, the toddler's parents released a statement thanking the doctors and hospital staff who cared for their son, saying they wanted to "build bridges" with Alder Hey. Karen & I are praying for comfort and peace for his parents, Katie & Tom, during this incredibly hard time.

He said: I would like to express my deepest sympathy at this moment of loss to Tom and Kate as we hold little Alfie in our prayers.

The basic dynamic is like the Gard and Evans and McMath cases but with the generational roles reversed: Instead of parents trying to pry their children away from the medical establishment, you have adult children unable to bring their parents home because their state-appointed guardians say no.

Another, Mary Fiander, wrote, "God bless you, lovely Alfie".
