VIDEO: Cody & Glen | AVID Prison Project

While in prison, Glen Huggins was rapidly losing weight, his stomach distended, and he became weak and frail. His deteriorating condition was treated with antacids. Cody still wonders why his father couldn’t see a doctor until the very end of his life to diagnose him with stage four esophageal cancer.
