My husband had a brain tumor and was moved from a minimum prison to the hosptial. The tumor was removed and he was moved to a county hospital that has a locked prison ward. He remained there for 10-12 weeks for chemo. He was than moved to a maximium security prison where he was transported back 2 hours to the hospital each day for radiation. He was than sent back to the county hospital to undergo another 10 weeks of chemo. This week after only a week of chemo he was moved back to the prison, where his treatment has been changed and he is now being transported again back and forth. During this time we have been denied contact visits and can only see him through video screen 1 time a week in the county hospital. He has not had mail, phone calls, tv, visits or been able to see the outside. They are slowly killing him, as his mental well being is slipping away. We have had to fight every step of the way to get information on his location or his health. We are so tired of fighting with the system, that we want to hire a lawyer, which of course we can not afford. He only has 10 months left on his sentence. He is only 37 and we fear that he has been handed a death sentence due to the treatment he has received. I am so tired of hearing that he is an inmate, like that is a good reason to not take care of him correctly. We need help and advice as to how to go forward. We aren't saying that he should be released, we understand that he commited a crime, but we want to make sure in 10 months he has a life to come home to.
