Charlie Gard’s family received incredible news on Friday—the doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital have requested a fresh trial, according to Faithwire.

“Two international hospitals and their researchers have communicated to us as late as the last 24 hours that they have fresh evidence about their proposed experimental treatment,” a hospital spokesperson told the BBC. “We believe, in common with Charlie’s parents, it is right to explore this evidence.”

The fresh trial will be heard on Monday afternoon.
