Fans Called On To Help Walter Trout With Liver Transplant

03/20/2014
.
(Classic Rock) Walter Trout's friends and family have launched an urgent campaign to raise $125,000 for a liver transplant. They say that, even though he's too ill to hold a guitar, he has an excellent chance of survival - but only if the surgery takes place in the next three months.

Trout has been in hospital for several weeks after battling liver disease for some time. His medical insurance doesn't cover the cost of a transplant so YouCaring fundraising campaign was launched.

Organizers of the campaign say: "Walter continued touring until a few weeks ago. We were given hope that medical treatment could reverse his condition, but we now know it hasn't worked. His liver has failed and doctors say his survival depends on receiving a transplant.

"The medical expenses are going to be immense. Walter will need to cancel much of the tour planned for 2014, leaving him and his family with little income." more on this story
