Cancer for a Black Man
On the streets of Tennessee during a pandemic
Can be a critical situation…
Cancer for any Black Man
In the prisons of Tennessee during a pandemic
Can be a death sentence…
PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH AS MANY AS YOU CAN.
I NEED OTHERS TO HELP ME WITH THIS FIGHT.
– Mary Wallace, Vern’s mom
My son Vern, who was wrongfully convicted, has now been diagnosed with cancer.
Please help me to gain his freedom from both of these.
When my son Vern tried to convince me that his series of medical “tests” were no big deal, I was skeptical. I felt like something wasn’t right. I reckon it’s mother’s intuition.
When Vern wrote me a letter telling me about his cancer diagnosis and I read the word “Momma”, I felt like I was hearing George Floyd screaming “Momma!” when officer Chauvin’s knee was on his neck – but this time it was my son’s voice coming out of George’s mouth.
George’s screams for his Momma were futile. I’m scared to death that my baby’s words to me, his Momma, may be futile also.
This is very scary for me.
WILL YOU PLEASE HELP ME by DOING THESE 3 THINGS- PLEASE?
1. Follow @J4VernBraswell, @BlackDefendants & Justice For Vern Braswell on Facebook to get updates about his condition and status of his case.
2. SEND AN EMAIL to the Governor of Tennessee in support of a clemency request to commute Vern’s remaining 4 1/2 year to home confinement. SEND EMAIL
3. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post, share, or forward this article to others and encourage them to help amplify my pleas- ESPECIALLY TO INFLUENCERS THAT YOU CAN REACH WHO HAVE PLATFORMS.
I pray that the color of his skin does not play a part in whether or not Vern will be able to come home.
