We are sad to announce that Sam has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. After 9 years of hell in the British prison system, she now faces her biggest challenge yet.
Sam’s best friend Nicole is currently fundraising to support her to support Sam. She writes:
For the last 7 years I have supported Sam alone, spending most of my income on prison visits, phone credit and travel costs to help her survive and appeal her sentence. I have never asked for financial help before.
Right now I am fundraising to help with these costs:
– subletting a room in London so I can go to hospital with her each week day (circa £400-600)
– travelling to HMP Peterborough every weekend (circa £80 each weekend)
– extra phone credit for Sam to call me more as her main source of emotional support (circa £25 per week)
– sending money to Sam for extra food etc in the prison as prison sick pay is only £2.50 per week (circa £25 per week)
My needs exceed this fundraiser however I am so aware of how many people around the world need financial support. This fundraiser is aimed at friends who can afford it, please don’t contribute if you’re on a super low income and trying to simply survive yourself. Thank you for your care and solidarity, it means the world to me and Sam.
