I received a most
disturbing telephone call on June 21st, from federal inmate named Robert
Sanders. He was released on 17 June 2003, by the Federal Bureau of Prisons
from FMC Rochester to CCC placement at the Fahrman House in Eau Claire, WI.,
after serving twenty-eight (28) calendar years in federal prison. The BOP gave
him $50.00 to start a new life. Many thanks to all those who immediately sent
help and donations to Robert. He still needs our help
At the time, Robert was HIV positive, had Hepatitis B and colon
cancer. He had no family, no friends and no money. He had been medically
assigned for the last 10 years while incarcerated because of his medical
conditions. Recently, Robert was told that he would have to undergo open heart
surgery. And his halfway house placement is over with. He is now on parole.
This man helped my father and I ship out 2500 pounds of legal
materials when we were released from FCI Miami, Florida, last June--dollied 42
boxes to R&D for us. He is a good man. Please let us all pitch in and help
Robert out. God only knows what he must be going through mentally after being
incarcerated for 28 years. The transition must be traumatic. Now with the
upcoming heart surgery, he is going to need every ounce of help he can get
during his recuperation and continuing reintegration.
Robert turned to FedCURE for help. Because this was and is such
an extraordinary case, in that, Robert was incarcerated for 28 years and has
no family or friends to support him through the reintegration period; and his
upcoming heart surgery, I believe this action to be appropriate and I appeal
to you all to assist this man in any way you can.
PLEASE, PLEASE, send whatever assistance you can to:
Mr. Robert Sanders
c/o Federal CURE
Plantation, Florida 33317-1731
Kindly notify me of your action soonest, so I can coordinate
this FedCURE effort, maintain an accounting of your assistance; and advise
Robert what to be expecting from us and when he will receive it.
