Hi, after taking a look at the parole laws in Georgia which state:
A decision to grant any type of clemency requires an affirmative vote by a majority of the members of the Parole Board. Excluding life sentences, at the time of consideration, the Board will establish a Tentative Parole Month (TPM) in the future or will deny parole entirely. The Board may reconsider and change a prior decision in a case, for any reason, at any time, up to the date of release. Georgia inmates (who are eligible for parole) have a right to be considered for parole, but they do not have a right or "liberty interest" which requires release on parole.
A TPM is not a final release decision. At the TPM, the Board will complete a final review of the offender’s case file and determine whether to set a parole release date.
After reading the law for parole it does not appear that you have a real chance at getting your brother released earlier than the 10/2019 date. I would suggest attending the parole hearing for your brother so that you can present this information in an attempt to help the parole board rule in his favor; however, I don't see anything in Georgia law that will allow you to petition for an earlier release. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I wish you the best while you continue to take care of your loved ones.
