Dear Friends/Supporters...

Here we are again and hopefully this will be the last time I will have 
to call on you for contributions to my Legal Defense Fund. As you know, 
we have had some successes in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. They 
have ruled in our favor twice, but each time stopped short of ordering 
my immediate release. My Freedom Team flew into Atlanta and argued my 
case before them (Oral Arguments), for yet a third time during this past 
summer. We now await their decision and it could come down any day, 
literally.Of course, even though we are right by law, we don't know how 
they will rule. However it turns out, we are prepared to continue until 
I take my long overdue long walk to freedom.

On yet another battle front, most of you know that I was diagnosed as 
having lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes).

I was transferred from USP Atlanta in June to the Federal Medical Center 
in Butner, N.C. I've undergone six chemo therapy treatments.What a rough 
journey that was!!!!But I made it!!!! The doctor had said that he was 
very pleased with the way my body responded to the treatments and that 
there has been a significant shrinkage of the tumors.Recently he said 
that my cancer is in remission.I have to take a CAT scan and a CT scan 
to make sure everything is all clear. What a relief!!!!

So, again I want to thank each and every one of you for your continued 
love, support and generous financial contributions. Every time you've 
been called upon, you haven’t hesitated to step up to the plate. Without 
YOU...I can't imagine.

Thank you,

Veronza Bowers, Jr.

*/How is it possible for a citizen of the USA to:/**//**/1) Serve his 
complete sentence under law;/**//**/2) Go through the entire parole 
process having his release recommended at every stage and at each 
hearing;/**//**/3) Have his release date rescinded four times at 
literally, the very last minute; 4) Have the highest administrative 
parole body in the nation vote on and fail to overturn his petition for 
parole . . . and still be held in prison for years after this sentence 


Dear Friends and Supporters,

Hello, this is Rhonda Woodruff Jones.  I am Veronza’s youngest Sister. I 
currently live in Phoenix, Arizona.  I hope you all are doing well.  So 
much has transpired since my last update to you all in December 2016.  I 
wanted to give you all an update and Veronza has also written a letter 
to you that is attached.  Veronza was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer 
this summer.  He is no longer in Atlanta, Georgia.  He is now in Butner, 
North Carolina receiving chemo treatments.  He has undergone 4 
treatments and has responded well to the medication. Veronza met with 
Dr. Carden a couple of days ago regarding his latest blood tests. Dr. 
Carden informed him that the  results were "impeccable", and that his 
lymphoma was in remission. Veronza was then moved to an area of the 
hospital where the risk of serious infection would be mitigated.  
Unfortunately, we are still waiting for results of recent CAT and CT 
(computer tomograhy) scans as well as a ruling by the 11th Circuit Court 
of Appeals regarding his habeas petition that was argued this past Spring.

Veronza’s new address is:

Veronza Bowers, Jr.  #35316-136

FMC Butner

PO Box 1600

Butner, NC 27509-1500

*_Update on Mr. Maynard Garfield_*

My brother Veronza (I call him Butch as his nickname) has asked that I 
help in administering the Defense Fund on his behalf, as dear friend 
Maynard Garfield has fallen ill and I just received word this week that 
Garf has passed.  His daughter contacted me this week of the news.  I 
ask that you please keep Garf’s memory close to your heart and that you 
pray for comfort for the family.
