Parents Send Prayer Request After Baby Alfie Stops Breathing

Alfie Evans

( – Another British family is in a desperate battle to save their son, Alfie. Alfie Evans has been in a coma since December, but doctors are not sure exactly why, the Liverpool Echo reports. This week, his parents sent out a desperate plea for prayers after their 15-month-old son stopped breathing and his heart rate slowed.

Tom Evans and Kate James said their son has an unknown brain condition, but he has shown signs of improvement. They said he was taken off a ventilator three times because his condition improved, and they had his seizures under control for a while. They said Alfie also moves and reacts when they touch him.

This week, however, the little boy’s condition worsened.

“Our gorgeous warrior is not doing good,” his father said. “His heart’s sitting low, he’s not doing his stretches, he’s not breathing and the doctors think this is his brain.

“He’s done so well all these months and we are praying he doesn’t end it soon,” he continued. “Please everyone continue to pray for our boy, as he has changed over the last two days. CONTINUE
