 Shakur received a diagnosis of life-threatening bone marrow cancer in 
October, 2019. Until now, he has requested that this information be kept
 private. For over a year he had experienced pain in his bones, but he 
was not even x-rayed until April 2019. Although the prison doctor 
probably suspected cancer and called for a CT scan, the scan was delayed
 for four months. After a year of delay, we know now that Mutulu is 
suffering from extensive painful bone lesions, caused by a rapidly 
growing bone marrow cancer. He is 69 years old, and aging in prison 
after 33 years of incarceration. In 2014, he suffered from a stroke, 
which required several months for recovery. He has high blood pressure, 
high cholesterol, diabetes, and vision problems from glaucoma. We fear 
for his survival and his life.</p>

<p style="margin:10px 0px;padding:0px;color:rgb(117,117,117);font-family:Helvetica;font-size:16px;line-height:150%;text-align:left">Dr.
 Shakur's legal team has filed a compassionate release petition, because
 now Dr. Shakur's very survival depends on his release. He meets the 
conditions for compassionate release under federal law. He is a 
recognized advocate for human and civil rights who poses no danger of 
committing any crimes against anyone. As evidenced by widespread support
 for his parole, he will be welcomed back into a community that will 
also provide for his financial and medical support. <strong>However, on December 5<sup>th</sup> he
 was denied compassionate release by the Central office of the BOP. He 
is currently receiving chemotherapy, but the BOP has not told him or his
 lawyer the exact type of treatment he is getting.  He has been able to 
talk with his newest lawyer Mark Kleiman and may receive a family visit 
from his son. Most importantly, Mutulu says that he is managing the 
treatment and his spirit is strong.</strong></p>

 next steps are two-fold: Mutulu will petition his original judge, Judge
 Haight in the Southern District of New York, to modify his sentence so 
he can be released immediately based on his current medical 
condition. Dr. Shakur also has a habeas petition in front of Judge 
Wilson in federal court in Los Angeles, detailing the parole 
commission's abuse of discretion through their politically-driven 
denials of parole. We will move to expedite that petition based on the 
newest information about his life-threatening medical condition.</p>
