But the outcome is still uncertain and Charlie's fate is precarious.
The hospital has countered that it's in Charlie's best interest to be removed from life support, as none of the treatments are certain to help him and could cause him to suffer.
Connie Yates was speaking at a protest outside a London hospital, where supporters were delivering a petition of more than 350,000 signatures, calling for the 11-month-old to travel to the US. The couple, from Bedfont, west London, want their son to undergo a therapy trial in America. In all, the parents raised over 1.3 million British pounds (nearly $1.7 million U.S.) - more than enough to pay for the treatment.
Under the health care laws in Britain, however, the parents are not allowed to pursue this option. Previously doctors had indicated Charlie had irreversible brain damage.

The hospital is bound by the ruling which expressly forbids it from transferring Charlie anywhere for the suggested experimental treatment, nucleoside therapy. The hospital also offered to send the drug to Great Ormond Street Hospital - the British hospital where Charlie is being treated - if approved, the Post added.

With the reporter focusing on relaying updates on the court case concerning critically ill baby Charlie Gard's medical treatment, he appears to have missed exactly what happened.
"This is so promising", said Foster.
That prompted the hospital to seek another High Court ruling.
Judges also said it would be "futile" for Charlie to have further treatment because he has irreversible brain damage and can not see, hear or move.
