Release Robert C. Fuentes before he dies in prison.

Urgency is needed for release of Robert C. Fuentes to his family in Corona.   Allow a dying man to go home. Due to medical negligence of his requests by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for his health, Robert is fighting for his what is left of his life.  He is dying from liver cancer that could have been treated had it been diagnosed sooner.  In February/March of 2014 he was given his diagnosis of inoperable liver cancer.  His CHRONO (CDCR 128-C) is dated June 13, 2014.  We would like to know why his diagnosis wasn't documented sooner so we could have started this process immediately.

After being incarcerated for 32 years on a 17-year to life sentence he has been dealt the worst sentence, a slow and painful death.  We are asking for mercy and a humanitarian release for Robert to live out his short life with those who love and care about him, his family and friends. He poses no threat given his frail condition.  We have seen his once healthy 210 lb frame dwindle down to 126 lbs as of 7.12.2014.  His 20 years of confinement at Pelican Bay State Prison have not broken his spirit though.  Our dedicated weekly family visits since Robert’s relocation to Vacaville Medical Facility are what keep him alive.  These visits have brought joy and happiness to him since his diagnosis.  We don’t want him to suffer alone. Please find it in your heart to grant his dying request to return home. 

We, his family, are pleading for his immediate parole or compassionate release.  Let him be surrounded by his parents Frank and Frances Fuentes and his five siblings.  He is leaving two children Lisa and Robert Jr. who have been denied the presence of a father. He has 3 grandchildren Angela, Rebekah, and Joseph and countless extended family members that want to see him.
