Tupac’s step-father, Dr. Mutulu Shakur, is facing life-threatening bone marrow cancer.
The announcement became public on Saturday December 14 as per the request of Mutulu Shakur. Dr. Shakur received the diagnosis of life-threatening bone marrow cancer back in October of 2019.
Dr. Shakur who is now 69 years old, had been experiencing pain in his bones, but it took a year for him to even receive an x-ray. Mutulu is also suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, vision problems from glaucoma, and suffered a stroke in 2014.
After filing a compassionate release petition on December 5th the request was denied, even though he meet the conditions required under federal law.
A new petition will be filed with his original Judge Haight. The aim is to modify his sentence so he can be released immediately based on his current medical condition.
Now his loved ones are asking for your help. Donations are much appreciated and can help with medical, legal defense, commissary, and more. Donations are accepted with Paypal via mutulushakur.com/site/paypal.
You are also welcomed to send letters of support and love to Mutulu at Victorville.
