New Letter Appeal To Get Jerome White-Bey The Medical Treatment He Needs

You may remember we were asking people to write letters of complaint on behalf
of Jerome White-Bey to get him some urgent medical treatment for a kidney
infection. Details of this letter appeal are here:

Jerome had been told over a 3-4 year period by doctors at three different
prisons that he had kidney problems which was a result of having diabetes. This
kidney infection had been left untreated for a long period of time and after
the letters of complaint and phone calls made to the prison from his last
letter appeal Jerome was then sent for tests and told that it was not in fact
his kidneys that had been making him unwell but that he has liver problems from
having Hepatitis C, which he was unaware he had till that point. He was then
told that he needs a course of treatment that will last for 12 months and
he'll have to be transferred to another prison to have the treatment.

Jerome now faces a new problem. He has been unwell for a long period of time
but the head doctor at Jefferson City has not approved his need for medical
treatment and the transfer to start it. The longer they take approving this
the worse his condition becomes.

Jerome thanks everyone for the complaints that were made last time to get him
this far but asks that we write letters or call the prison again to get him
transferred and started on the treatment he needs.
Please write letters of complaint to:
