Urgent Health Campaign for Robert Seth Hayes

Robert Seth Hayes is currently 65 years old. His family and friends are requesting an appropriate medical work-up in an outside facility for abnormal weight loss, because Mr. Hayes has lost 40 pounds in the last 3 months and currently weighs only 140 pounds max. 40 lbs of weight loss in a few months is very concerning for cancer and cancer needs to be ruled out. This is most urgently needed for Seth’s health right now. This weight loss is acute and clearly urgent.

Mr. Hayes was first diagnosed with Type II diabetes in the year 2000. In the 13 years since then, DOCCS (Department of Corrections and Community Supervision) has been completely unable to control his blood sugar levels. At the time he was diagnosed, Mr. Hayes was at Clinton. He was transferred to Wende in 2003 and then to Sullivan in 2010. Throughout this time, Mr. Hayes’ sugar levels have either soared to the 300 to 400 levels or been extremely low, in the 50 to 70 levels, both life-threatening. Mr. Hayes also has Hepatitis C, for which he is currently not receiving any treatment. Diabetes is an insidious disease, and the constant sugar fluctuations can lead to renal failure, coma or stroke.

Please write, call, fax and email the following people and insist that Robert Seth Hayes, DIN No. 74-A-2280, be taken to an outside medical facility as soon as possible. If you are a doctor, nurse, or any other kind of medical personnel, please use your letterhead. Please email nycjericho@gmail.comand let us know what response you receive. Also, if you are able to find out any additional phone or fax numbers, we will be grateful for
the information.

 Robert Seth Hayes was arrested in 1973, after police opened fire on his apartment while he was home with his wife and children. This occurred as a result of the U.S. government’s illegal Counterintelligence Program (COINTELPRO), in a climate dominated by portrayals of black militants as murderers and cop-killers. Seth, a former member of the Black Panther Party, was convicted for the death of a NYC transit cop and for the attempted murder of the cops who stormed his apartment. He received a sentence of 25 years to life, and is being held at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, NY
