President Trump Please Grant Sentence Commutation for my Mom Patricia Cooney

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

My Mom, Patricia Cooney, a first time nonviolent offender originally sentenced to 100 years, has served over 18 years and, after sentence reductions, now has 14 years left to serve. However, unjustly, her two sentences are now running consecutively, NOT CONCURRENTLY!  If they were running concurrently and with her being a model inmate she would have been released well over a year ago!!  AND, unfortunately, to my horror and sheer disbelief, she was denied sentence commutation by President Obama for no valid reason! 

To all those who previously signed and shared my petition, thank you so very much. And to those who are seeing this petition for the first time, will you please sign it and share it so that others will support my Mother being granted sentence commutation by President Trump!  My Mom is gravely ill and is making the most of her time in spite of overwhelming health-related circumstances. Through the years in prison and without competent medical care and treatment, my Mother's health has continued to decline. My Mother has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, chronic anemia, hyperthyroidism. Most recently, in 2018, she was diagnosed with Lupus, a chronic and deadly disease, and doctors found two spots on her brain which we are in limbo as to what they are at this point?  She lives in constant pain because of these diseases. When I visit her she speaks of her symptoms which include sleepless nights, numb hands that swell and change colors, drastic temperature changes, constant pain, irregular balance, tooth loss and dramatic weight loss. These noticeable physical changes terrify us both.

President Trump, on behalf of my Mother and thousands of other inmates serving extreme sentences and dealing with major health issues, we need your help. I humbly ask that you give me and thousands of others the opportunity to lessen the burden on the prison system by giving us the privilege and honor to care for those we love, our family members.

President Trump, I humbly ask that you grant sentence commutation to my Mom and other ill inmates who have served more than their time. Without your help my Mom and many others will not live to their release dates.
