Connie Yates and Chris Gard, parents of terminally-ill 10-month-old Charlie Gard, pray with a priest from the United States prior to delivering a petition of signatures supporting their case at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in central London on July 9, 2017.

The British hospital treating the terminally ill baby boy said on July 7, 2017 that it would examine claims that he could be treated after U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis drew international attention to the case.
