Today is day 195 of since Chris was arrested. He still hasn't received any MEDICINE for his CANCER treatment. However, he has been receiving daily since incarseration medicine for high blood pressure and a baby aspirin.
Chris officially has a new lawyer!!! Criminal Defense and Family Law!! This is a win win for Chris on all fronts! And he is in Florida which makes things a lot easier for all involved. His other lawyer was based in California so the time change and distance ultimately was a bit of an issue. We've parted ways on good terms and have made great relationships.
Yesterday, Chris had a visit with a Physicians Assisant in the DC Jail regarding the pain he is experiencing with his rotator cuff. It's been approximately 100 days since he saw the doctor and the doctor order physical therapy for Chris' shoulder. After a week of PT Chris's is experiencing more pain than normal so the PA wanted to see his range of motion so that he can be scheduled with a Orthopedic doctor to have a better look. The Physical Assistant wasn't very friendly and told Chris "I'M NOT GOING TO SEE YOUR WHITE ASS AGAIN". This is just some of the mental abuse they are going through. Of course a grievence was registered with the jail. The grievences process has changes and used to be writen on carbon copy paper so the inmate could retain a copy. The jail has moved to a new system I am told that is electronic and no longer provides the inmate with a copy. Speaking of grievences.....Sunday night the guys were served again the awful meal of two hard boiled eggs, TARTER SAUCE, a scoop of pasta salad and a cookie!!! What kind of meal is this!!!! I know this is prison and not a 5 star hotel but that is not a meal!
Thank you for your prayers and God Bless America!
So last night the guys had not received their dinner as of 8:40pm. Mind you breakfast is served at 4am and lunch at 11:30am. That's a long gap of time for most people to go without something. That's where their commissary comes in. Anyways last nights dinner consisted of 2 hard boiled eggs, TARTER SAUCE and cookies!!!! That's not a meal for anyone!!! What the heck!!!
Well not much to report other than Chris' neck healed nicely after the biopsies.
John Pierce had taken on all these cases pro-bono so we had no out of pocket expenses other than any medical with no medical insurance. Since John's medical condition put him out of the office for several weeks this has put a delay on all of his cases including Chris'. I am happy he has recovered and is easing back into his work flow. However, we've decided it's time to part ways. Now is the time to make the decision on a new lawyer. It's hard to find a good lawyer without having to pay a retainer so thankfully for this fundraiser we are able to hire another lawyer. We will continue to raise funds to pay for lawyer fees, medical bills and other living expenses.
Thank you again for your continued support.
This morning Chris messaged me that his neck is bruised, swollen, red and extremely sore. He is very worried it will turn into an infection since the doctors that performed the procedure decided not to shave the area. Mind you he now has a beard that is close to touching his chest and facial hair because he has not agreed to take the JAB. The jail has denied him the privilege of keeping up his personal hygiene. Chris is very picky about his hair and shaving. Always groomed to the nines, haircut every two weeks kinda guy.
He said he went down to medical this morning and the nurse told him "There is nothing else I can do!!". Please pray that Chris heals properly from this procedure. He is a bit worried as it's out of his control to just dial up or go see a doctor like anyone normally would in this situation.
I had a great laugh this morning and it was much needed! Jeff Dunham (I love him and have been to see many of his shows) has a Youtube Video he posted on 8/19/21. If you need a laugh this is for you!! Also, it's kind of sad because we are all living in this situation one way or another. Search: Jeff Dunham - LIVE: President Biden Press Conference. I wish somehow the guys in the DC Jail could watch it as it would really make them laugh for a while.
Chris has really been struggling mentally lately. He is extremely concerned that his cancer has progressed to a point where his quality of life will seriously jeopardize his quality time with his son, his family and myself.
Today Chris was taken for the needle biopsies of the new tumors in his neck and lymph nodes. Mind you the results of his PET Scan came in around June 18th. Close to three months later for this test to be completed! Results of course are TBD. He is in a tremendous amount of discomfort from the procedure today. He was given an over the counter type pain reliever which isn’t subsiding his pain. He has no access to ice to place on that area for an alternative method of pain relief.
Because he was taken out prison ("released" per say) for this off-site procedure he didn’t receive his commissary. Thursday’s the jail delivers their orders but since in the system is stated he was "released" the items were returned to stock and his account is credited. He tries to keep a supply on hand of mac and cheese, turkey sticks, beef sticks, oatmeal, squeeze cheese and other items to add to the meals that they deliver or make a concoction of his own with what he has on hand. He can’t no longer stand looking at the two slices of bologna they provide for dinner anymore but he does save the two slices of bread and the cookie. He does have a sweet tooth.
So, I will leave you with this quote:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
Thank you again for being in Chris' arena and for your continued support. Please enjoy and have a safe Labor Day weekend.
God Bless you and God Bless America.
I just got off the phone with Chris it was just a few minutes after 9pm. I love this time when I get the call because it is such an amazing experience to hear all of the Patriots sing the National Anthem together then they have a group prayer. Also, their singing can be heard in other prisoner pods in the same building but on different floors.
Attached is the audio file of them singing. There are a few seconds to start off with that random noise before they start singing. I'd like to encourage you to sing along with them nightly at 9pm.
Also, I'l like to mention that all these guys have been labled White Surpremacists, which they are not. Not many people know that in their pod there is this incredibly intelegent and witty Retired Colonel and he is the first America black man to be labeled a White Surpremacist. The media outlets haven't event mentioned him so I wanted to share this with you. Troys a wonder man. I've spoken on the phone many times with him. We've helped Troy's family create a crowdfunding site as he needs to support his family and raise funds for his legal team as well. Please be so kind as to take a look at his site (as an added bonus, you will get a good chuckle!)
Please support and share his site as they are all in this together! https://www.givesendgo.com/G27cr
Thank you again from your support and encouragement! I read to Chris your comments and he feels so blessed to have you in his corner!
God Bless you and America!
I spoke with Chris and he is overwhelmed knowing he has so many Patriots supporting him. He definately is feeling lots of love which has boosted his spirits tremendously while being in the horrible place.
Greg Kelly was able to get the REAL story out there! All these guys need their stories to be heard and we need to know that facts.
Again thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts and please pray that Chris gets the treatment for his medical condition he despretely needs.
Here is the link from the Greg Kelly interview to watch again and share https://youtu.be/Y7-e6OI_w4U
Tonight at 7pm EST Chris will be giving a live update from the DC Jail on Newsmax with Greg Kelly. I hope you are able to watch or look for the replay on YouTube tomorrow. Another emergency motion was put in to the Government to request of release so that Chris can get some treatment for his Lymphona. At this point it is believed that he is at stage 3 with this disease. Please pray that he get the medical treatment he deserves as an American Citizen.
As always thank you for your support!
Chris is still incarsurated in the SC Jail for 5 months now.
Chris had a PET Scan, CT Scan and Bone Marrow biposy in June through the prision system. The PET Scan showed new activity that he has a recurrence of his lymphoma and currently is NOT being treated. HE NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION and the DOJ and US Marshalls are not providing this.
In addition he has a tooth that needs a root canal. The Jail said they can only pull the tooth as they do not provide dental serves or send inmates out for such proceedures. Pulling the tooth is out of the question and he needs a root canal. So now he sits in jail with agenizing mouth pain in addition to the worry that his Cancer is spreading and untreated.
Please keep Chris and all the Patriots in your prayers.
