This story was told by a person incarcerated at Todd Road Jail.
Caller: It’s been – it’s been rough. You know what I mean? And I think about my – my family because I have five sisters, and my mom — my mom just got – one of her breasts removed, and she’s getting the other one removed because of cancer, and she has a weak heart.
So I worry that she might get it, and then being incarcerated and not being able to be there for her, it’s a little stressful. I have another sister. She’s the youngest out of five. She has three tumors in her head.
One of them just got removed from her brain, and she had to learn how to walk, use the bathroom, how to eat, how to talk, everything like a – like a born baby again. You know her son, which is my nephew, has a tumor in his face. It’s like a little deformed.
My other sister has cancer. My brother, he’s 30 – 39, he fell off – he fell off the hotel a couple months ago, five stories, you know what I mean? He can barely walk.
You know what I like – I’ve been going through it, you know what I mean? But I still try to stay positive, you know and I worry for them because they – they’re – I know COVID-19 attacks the immune system. Like – like old – elderly people like my mom or – or even the – the young ones, you know?
So, I – I worry about them, you know? It’s – it’s just hard, you know what I mean, being in here and finding out something that’s — something might happen to them, you know?
