I emailed the Director of Federal Bureau of Prisons. He would be the big boss of federal prisons. He is based in DC and should be able to let a visit happen. If everyone would send a quick message maybe it would help. Here is what I sent. Feel free to copy and paste:
Subject: Little girl dying while Dad finishes last 4 months of sentence
Dear Honorable Harley G Lappin,
I am writing to see if you could allow this father a furlough to visit his dying ten year old daughter. His name is Jason Yaeger and he is in the Yankton, SD facility with only a few months left of his drug sentence. His daughter is dying of a brain tumor and needs her dad by her side. http://www.ketv.com/family/15643474/detail.html
I do not know the family but feel compassion is warranted in this sad case.
Thank you for your consideration.
How heartbreaking. Thanks for letting us know about this.
I emailed too. I hope having people email about it makes a difference.
I also posted this on 2 other sites I'm a regular at... one for women and one for parents... so I'm sure many will take up the cause there as well.
