This is not a joke. I've known this family for over 15 years. The institutional treatment of Frankie has been horrendous. He was sweet as child and has been locked away for far too long.
Kindly take a minute and sign the petition. :
Thanks and lets get Frankie home for the holidays!
After loosing all hope, Janette Vance wrote and set up the enclosed petition.
The miracle we are asking for is that Governor Corzine approve the Proposed Community placement and allow Frankie to have a home and receive humane treatment.
If you find it in your heart to do so, we are asking that you… sign your name and add a comment of your choice even if the comment is just "Governor Corzine Free Frankie".
Help Frankie achieve his dream and express your feelings.
Please forward the petition to all of your family, friends and associates, please ask them to send it to all of their family, friends and associates.
Please help save Frankie—you can make a difference.
