Walter Trout's Family Ask Fans For More Help In Liver Disease Fight

(Classic Rock) Walter Trout's family have asked fans for more help as the bluesman's liver disease continues to threaten his life. The community rallied round last month after it was revealed he couldn't afford the urgent transplant he needed, raising $125,000 in just four days.

But he's a victim of two opposing medical guidelines - meaning that if he's healthy enough to undergo the operation, he's also healthy enough to be dropped down the transplant queue.

That means more cash is needed to keep him alive until doctors can place him in the ideal situation. So his YouCaring page has raised its target to $250,000, with $181,000 already secured.

His wife Marie says: "It is a constant dual pivot. Doctors want Walter strong enough to withstand the surgery, and his lab numbers need to qualify him - meaning his labs need to show him sicker." more on this story
