Frank Lee Smith died screaming from inadequate pain management for cancer on Florida’s death row. Months later, he was posthumously exonerated. Jeffrey Srang received inappropriate care for his cancer within Florida’s prison system. He was released early – under cruel conditions – to die ridiculously young, at age 28. Anthony Bellido-Caronell is 43. He is also too young to die of cancer, and too young to lose a limb to it.
Anthony’s was busted for heroin possession in 2015. His scheduled release date is June 7, 2019.
Florida must release Anthony now. Unconditionally. The world is watching, a world that already knows that Darren Rainey didn’t survive a two-year possession sentence in the Sunshine State’s malevolent prison system. Please read Jeremy Schanche’s letter, below, from the UK.

Dear Julie Jones and Florida officials –
I am writing to you as I am extremely worried about the medical condition of Florida inmate Anthony Bellido-Carbonell (# D31307) – A tumor was found in this man-s leg one year ago – The leg has recently turned black and is losing sensation – these are typical gangrene symptoms – I implore you to ensure that he receives immediate and appropriate medical care for this disease which is threatening his limb and quite possibly his life –
I do not know what crime this man committed but he is entitled to medical care as a fundamental legal right and I ask you sincerely to expedite this urgently before his condition worsens –
With many thanks –
Yours sincerely –
