Pollard Medical Update
From the Committee to Bring Jonathan Pollard Home
For Immediate Release - December 2, 2012
Esther Pollard has been updated about her husband's medical condition. Jonathan is still hospitalized. He is receiving serious pain management medication as he continues to undergo observation and various medical interventions which have not been finalized, pending further consultation.
Because of his long years of incarceration under harsh conditions (including seven years in solitary confinement), inadequate nutrition, and inadequate medical care, Jonathan is suffering from numerous medical conditions. The compounded effect of these multiple medical issues is wreaking havoc on his overall health and threatening his ability to survive. His body is simply worn out.
We are praying very hard and ask everyone to join us in praying for Jonathan's recovery and for his speedy release from prison so that he can final get the medical attention he desperately needs, at home, in a humane and safe environment.
Mrs. Pollard is awaiting further details and clarifications. The Committee will provide further updates as more information becomes available.
