:
Walter is currently hospitalized & in urgent need of a liver transplant!

Walter has been battling severe liver disease bravely for the past many months. He has continued touring and recording until a few weeks ago - he loves playing for people, and it has been the best medicine for him.

We were given hope that medicinal treatment could reverse his condition but we now know that this hasn't worked. His liver has failed, and doctors say his survival depends on receiving a transplant.

He is at UCLA in and out of Intensive Care, which is a prime facility for liver transplants. Walter has health insurance but this will not cover the full cost of his treatment. The medical expenses, co-pay, medication, after-care, etc. 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.
By helping support this effort, you can help give Walter peace of mind and focus solely on his health and recovery before, during and after the transplant.
The timeline is uncertain at this point. Waiting for a suitable liver donor in the hospital can be a lengthy and costly process of many weeks or even months.
There will be considerable cost for rehabilitation, re-training and physical therapy post-surgery
Quote From Walter's Wife Marie:

"Thank you for coming here and sending your love towards Walter. It means the world to him and to me to feel surrounded with your love and prayers at this difficult time. Walter has lost 100 pounds and most of his muscle tissue in the past year, and suffered much pain. It has been heart wrenching to watch him go through this. He has tried to put on a brave face for us all - he has kept playing, composing, singing, touring, and recording because music and communicating through music has always been his life line.. But he has reached the point, where he is too sick to stand up or even hold a guitar. Thank you again on Walter's behalf for your love and support."

What Happens When You Donate?

Any funds will go straight to helping Walter with his medical expenses offering him and his family some help offsetting the many expenses related to this situation. Walter has been given a great prognosis for a full recovery. He should be able to withstand the massive operation. Walter wants to stay alive and be with his wife and three sons (ages 20,18 and 12). We all want him to also keep playing music for decades to come once his new liver is implanted and settled. Doctors say that Walter's lungs, kidneys and heart are all in great condition, so once a new liver is in there, he is expected to make a full recovery. You will own a little piece of this success every time Walter takes to the stage in years to come when you help support this effort. Walter's wife Marie will be posting updates on his condition.

Walter has mentored my husband, Danny Bryant and been his 'musical father' since Danny was just 15 years old. The kindness and continued support he has shown us all over the years is indescribable. I simply don't know anyone else in the world like him! Thanks for your help and support.

I met Walter once and we chatted about hard tail guitars. He was engaging and very friendly. His live shows are incredible and his guitarface is the stuff of legend

gure in just four days.

But his wife has warned there are many more hurdles the bluesman must face before he can undergo the gruelling surgery – including emotional as well as physical pain.

The YouCaring page was launched to raise $125,000 after his family revealed 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.

“That’s the good news. The bad news is that, since he’s now doing better, he is no longer a top priority for immediate transplant. He still needs a transplant and they still figure it will be within the next 90 days – but because his vital functions have normalised he is further down the list.

“He is now medically stable, and doctors have determined that the safest place for Walter to be is at home, with 24/7 care. So he will be coming home to me some time next week to wait for a liver there.”

She admits the can see the “fair commune system” that’s led to the medical situation, but adds: “Emotionally it is hard. Basically the message is, ‘Yes, you need a a new liver – but until your other organs shut down you cannot receive priority.’ It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do when it comes to these precious organ donations – all who are on the liver transplantation list are equal: The sickest gets priority.”

Trout is currently in no physical shape to undergo the 8-10 hour operation, and exercise will be difficult since even walking is painful. He’ll receive physical therapy at home and he’ll require someone to be in attendance at all hours of the day and night.

Marie continues: “Many of you have asked if there is something we can do to speed up the process. Really, there isn’t. There are no experimental programmes and a living donor option is not possible.

“The gift of life in the form of a donated liver will be afforded to Walter from somebody who is going to die, typically a violent and sudden death. This process is tender, difficult, and it will be life-saving, even as death comes to the donor.”

Despite the physical and emotional turmoil, she’s determined to help her husband keep fighting, explaining: “I love Walter so much. He gives my world colours. He is the most alive and vibrant person I know. This community we are creating here will sustain his faith, help him have peace of mind and enforce his willingness to persevere.

“Hang in there with us – it offers us much relief to know we stand shoulder to shoulder with you all. Let’s keep the positive energy going. We are long-distance runners, and we all run this race with Walter.”

Trout’s YouCaring page will accept donations for another 45 days.

I hope many of my Brothers and Sisters here contribute to helping this great musician. I just donated $10.00. I'm sure most of us can afford at least a couple of dollars to contribute.

ROCK OUT FOR TROUT
A Walter Trout Benefit

On Tuesday April 8th we invite guitar and music fans to the EXIT/IN in Nashville, TN where Royal Southern Brotherhood will be joined on stage by some of their musical friends for a very special benefit show for the one and only, Walter Trout.

Walter Trout is one of our dearest guitar HEROES and with the recent devastating news of his rapidly progressing liver disease, we want to pull together some of our friends to help raise money and awareness. Although Walter and his family have reached their medical fundraising goal, set up by a friend to help get Walter a new liver transplant, we know there will be other medical and personal expenses they will incur. Let's all show our love and support for one of the greatest guitar players of all time.

To Donate Please Visit: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/walter-trout-needs-a-new-liver- you-can-help-/151911

Who the hell are you to decide who should get a liver?

Just signed up today to spew some crap, huh?

Change that sign back to "O days without a troll post".
