During this morning's telephone conversation with Jeffrey, he informed me there was a date he was to see the medical specialist. Sadly, that date has come and gone. I remain in complete and utter disbelief that Jeffrey's dire medical issues continue to be blatantly ignored to the point of medical negligence by the prison.
To cause further angst, Jeffrey told me a fellow individual recently requested to report to sick call immediately. His request was denied by the corrections officer as it was prior to the "official" sick call time. Tragically, he died a couple hours later. The cause of death, a HEART ATTACK!
Friends, I cannot and will not let Jeffrey suffer the same tragic consequences. I am requesting your help once again to get my beloved husband the medical treatment he is inherently entitled to as a human being.
Every day I am plagued by unimaginable fear when my telephone rings, as when the caller ID says "private," I am terrified if it is going to be Jeffrey's voice on the other end or that of a prison employee with terrible news.
Please help us:
** You may once again email or phone the Warden, Deborah Denham, demanding that Jeffrey receive the necessary and proper medical care. You can contact her at ExecAssistant@bop.gov or call 303-763-4300.
In addition to contacting the Warden, please email or call the North Central Regional Office that is responsible for oversight and support to FCI Englewood and other prisons in its jurisdiction. You may email Sara M. Revell at NCRO/ExecAssistant@bop.gov or call 913-621-3939.
** Chances are you’ve already signed the petition for President Obama to grant Jeffrey an immediate pardon. Now I hope you’ll encourage others to sign it as well. Mindful that the president will be vacating his office soon, I will be making my way back to DC for a final plea.
** Your help for the Sterling Family Fund -- donating here -- would assist with me hiring a lawyer, as it currently appears that may be the only way for Jeffrey to receive proper medical care. The Fund also continues to allow me the privilege to visit with Jeffrey, and I pray my recent visit will not be the last.
** Lastly, please continue to send words of encouragement to my dear husband Jeffrey. You may write letters and/or send cards to him at the following address:
JEFFREY STERLING, 38338-044
FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION
9595 WEST QUINCY AVENUE
LITTLETON, CO 80123
Jeffrey and I remain grateful and humbled by your actions and support standing in solidarity to get him the medical help he is entitled to. We honestly could not continue without your support and help, as tragically our government continues to demonstrate how powerful and evil it truly can be. We wish all of you health, happiness, and peace to you and your families.
