Walter Trout Liver Transplant Fundraising Campaign Passes Target

(The Blues) The fundraising campaign to help pay for Walter Trout's urgent liver transplant has passed its target figure in just four days. But his wife has warned there are many more hurdles the bluesman must face before he can undergo the grueling surgery - including emotional as well as physical pain.

The YouCaring page was launched to raise $125,000 after his family revealed he doctors had given him 90 days to live without a transplant. With just over $133,000 secured, Marie Trout has thanked fans for their support - and says any further donations will ease his road to recovery even further as he prepares to leave hospital for home-based care.

She says: "Walter and I are speechless at how you have rallied around this cause. You have absolutely filled our hearts to the brim with your care and concern. The outpouring of love, concern and prayers is truly amazing.

"As we are facing a long period of uncertainty your contributions are helping Walter relax. He is very weak - he is tired all the time and he has all the symptoms of end-stage liver disease. The past two weeks have helped him regain his kidney function and almost cleared the infection that was throughout his body." more on this story
