The day earlier, Schofield shared to Facebook another heartbreaking post.
“As the days go by he deteriorates more and more. He no longer looks like Charlie,” she said.
“He’s so thin, I can see and feel every bone in his tiny body, his sunken face, his rolling eyes. Where has my chunky baby gone.”
Detailing her son's mental journey, she reflected: “He’s sad, he’s tired, he’s fed up and depressed. ‘I don’t know what to do anymore’ are his main words.”
“Today, he’s been very agitated, wanting to lay down, sit up, lay in bed, then on the beanbag, then on the sofa, then back upstairs and so on…Charlie, at one point, turned to me and said in the most quiet, painting voice, ‘Mummy, I’m so sorry for this,’” she wrote, adding that her heart broke hearing her son apologise for wanting “to move again.”
The Manchester Evening News reported Charlie was first diagnosed with hepatoblastoma in February 2016.
According to Stanford’s Children Hospital, hepatoblastoma “is a very rare cancerous tumor that starts in the liver” and “primarily affects children from infancy to about 3 years of age.”
Charlie's parents raised money to fund a trip to the US so that he could get a liver transplant.
Celebrities rallied around Charlie's journey, including Pink.
“Just came across this beautiful child and I would like to help him. Please help me help him if you can. Thank you 🙏. @charlies_chapter,” the singer wrote on Instagram last month.
Pink went on to donate £10,000 ($18,000) to help Charlie, The Sun reported.
Our thoughts are with Charlie's family.
