Polish Doctor Who Examined Alfie Evans Says He's Not 'Dying' or 'Brain-Dead,' He's Been Misdiagnosed

Pałgan said that Alfie's brain scans do not show that he is in a "terminal state."

Dr. Izabela Pałgan, a pediatrician and children's oncologist from Bydgoszcz in Poland, told Radio Wnet April 25 that in her professional opinion, doctors at Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool where Alfie is being kept are misdiagnosing the boy.

"Doctors at the hospital in Liverpool asked the court to agree to the separation of the infant from life-support, on the grounds that it would be in the 'best interests' of the child. The infant is not a dying child. He is not brain-dead," she said, as reported by Polish news portal

Pałgan said that Alfie's brain scans do not show that he is in a "terminal state." They do not, for example, show the state of his brain stem, she said.

"The child reacts to the voice of his father, he periodically opens his eyes, he tightens his mouth around his soother. The parents insist that he is making contact with them," she added.

Videos taken by the family and posted to Facebook show the toddler yawning, making eye contact, responding to voice, sucking his dummy.

The child, who is lying ill in Liverpool's Alder Hey children's hospital, is at the center of a dispute between his parents, the British courts, and the hospital. The hospital and the courts have decided that the child is terminally ill and that it is in his "best interests" to die. His parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, disagree.

Dr. Pałgan claims to have examined Alfie in Britain some time ago at the request of Alfie's parents. They had asked for second opinions.

A court order had Alfie removed from his ventilator on April 23 just after 9:00 PM. He defied everyone's expectations by breathing on his own. He has now been breathing on his own for over 60 hours. Parents Tom and Kate have fought every step of the way since this time to secure oxygen, water, and food for their son. They would like to take him for treatment in Italy, but the courts have consistently ruled against that.

The Polish doctor said that the fact that Alfie can breathe on his own, coupled with his MRI, prove that he is not in a terminal state...
