The father of little Alfie Evans is speaking out publicly for the first time since his son died after a children’s hospital removed his life support without his parents permission. In a message posted on Facebook, Alfie’s father Tom says his son was not treated properly by Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
“It’s been 1 month and 2 weeks since our gladiator was taken away from us,” Tom Evans wrote, adding that Alfie was “deprived, neglected, mistreated, and disrespected.” He said he and Kate “will never come to terms with it and will never accept Alfie’s death or cause of death.”
Evans said his Christian faith is what keeps him going.
“There is one thing that keeps us going and that’s our belief and faith that we will meet our angel again in the future, so we cherish the times we have had with him and look forward to the future to making more memories with him,” Evans said.
There has been considerable controversy surrounding Alfie’s cause of death and Tom Evans promised he would address that in the future.
“We wanted everyone to know that in time as we grieve, we will be speaking out further to the build up to Alfie’s death and we will be speaking out the truth and in detail about the week that we had to go through, that no other patient should have to go through or imagine,” Evans wrote. “The world needs to know what happened in those five days and what we did and went through to have Alfie cared for when he proved doctors wrong.”
