Medical Malfeasance and Deliberate Indifference at SCI-Mahanoy Is Killing Mumia Abu-Jamal

Dear Friends & Comrades,
MUMIA NEEDS US AGAIN! PLEASE CALL, FAX, AND E-MAIL NOW!
We are concerned about Mumia’s deteriorating health, as has been witnessed in recent weeks by his visiting doctor, clergy, counselors, teachers, family and friends.
Evidence of intensifying Hepatitis C symptoms and possible development of the diabetes that nearly killed him a year ago calls for immediate and appropriate treatment. We, therefore, urge you to,
- Immediate provision to Mumia of anti-viral treatment to cure his Hepatitis C condition that is, as his doctor testified in court, the persistent cause of worsening skin disease, almost certain liver damage, now extreme weight-gain and hunger, and other diabetic-like conditions.
- Immediate release of all recent blood test results to Mumia’s attorneys.
- Vigilant monitoring of Mumia for signs of diabetes, especially of his blood sugar level, since a diabetes attack nearly killed Mumia last Spring of 2015.
PHONE, FAX, AND E-MAIL THESE DEMANDS TO:
PA GOVERNOR, TOM WOLF
PA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, SECRETARY, JOHN WETZEL
Phone: 717-728-2573, 717 787 2500
MAHANOY PRISON, SUPERINTENDENT, Theresa DelBalso
(You have to be transferred to her secretary, and she refuses to give out the fax number or e-mail for the Superintendent. Not surprising, given that this new superintendent has a very heavy military background)
