The parents of Alfie Evans has asked people to stop posting edited pictures of him as supporters photoshopped photos of the baby with angel wings and halos. The fans call themselves ‘Alfie’s Army,’ but their actions upset parents greatly.

“The second one is the pictures people are doing of Alfie with wings and halos saying ‘RIP Alfie’, it’s really upsetting Kate. So if you want to have a picture of Alfie on your profiles that is fine but none of the above on them please,” stated Sarah.

Heartbreaking story of a toddler boy 

Alfie is terminally ill and 23-month-old has a degenerative neurological condition. As he has been living with the help of life-support machine for a long time, doctors had to withdraw life support. That is when the battle between life and death started.

The parents of Alfie decided to take the toddler abroad for treatment. They have undergone a series of court meetings and even had to ask for the help of Italy – the country, where Alfie will get medical support.

Italian ambassador granted Alfie citizenship of Italy in order to take him to Rome. Mr. Evans, the father of Alfie, even met the Pope and the Italian authorities, who agreed to help them out.

Mr. Evans said there was a few times when he and his mother had to help Alfie with his breathing, ‘At some point I had to give him mouth-to-mouth because his lips went blue and he was really fighting with his breathing so me and his mum were giving him mouth-to-mouth.’

Italy is ready to meet the boy anytime.

“In reality, he could be in Italy right now. We all know the military air force are ready to take him and a team of doctors are there,” stated Alfie’s father.

“We’ve also got a German air ambulance team, who attempted to take him in the first place, ready… the reality is these people are eager to get him out of the country and I’m not giving up because Alfie’s breathing away, he’s not suffering.”

High Court limitations

A judge rejected claims that Alfie felt ‘significantly better’ and that the boy could live without life support. He stated that Alfie’s time had come and there was nothing they could do to help him. However, the father of Alfie claims that the child can breathe by himself, that’s why he needs medical help from abroad as soon as possible.

Fortunately, Alfie Evans has survived the night and is breathing unaided almost 36 hours after his life support machine was switched off.

The hospital’s doctors say there is no hope for Alfie, that’s why the court doesn’t have enough evidence to allow them to leave the country.

Yesterday, a judge of High Court stated Alfie might be allowed to leave from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, but would not be allowed to go to Rome for further treatment.

Christian Legal Centre, Alfie’s parent’s lawyer, stated the case would be heard at the Court of Appeal on Wednesday afternoon.
