Can YOU help Baby Charlotte?
"At the moment we're trying to get specifics on what sort of equipment
would be needed for her to come home, and exactly how much it would cost.
There are some other practical things we're not sure about... she will
probably need at least some nursing care, and we don't know if the NHS
might provide a nurse or not. And currently they are in a two bedroom
flat with the two little boys, but Charlotte would require her own room,
so they would have to find a three or four bedroom place.
But her parents really want to get her out of the hospital,and they would
like to get a reassesment of her condition, for they feel the hospital has
not done well by her.
Darren & Debbie are asking if it would be at all possible to bring in a
pro-life doctor from elsewhere, with some knowledge in this field, to do
an independent assessment on Charlotte. Would you know of any leads, or
how we might go about this? They feel strongly that the NHS is not
working for her best interest, and just now it seems as if maybe an
American doctor might be able to make a less politicized assesment than a
It would be a great deal better if a doctor could come out here (to England) to assess her (rather than trying to bring Charlotte to another country). If that was completely impossible she might be able to be flown out, though it would probably involve more difficulties. She has never left the hospital, and is right now in 45% oxygen.
At the moment we don't have her full medical records; though her parents
and their solicitor have asked for them from the hospital, so far it has
been without result. I think we can get some material; but I'm not sure
about how much.
Let me know if there are any other questions... I'll try my best to answer
them. Thanks so much for doing this.
I will let you know as soon as we find out more specifics. Thank you for
working for her."
