Curtis Salgado Gets A Liver
I posted on September 2 about Curtis Salgado, the great Portland OR harmonica player and vocalist. He is fighting liver cancer, yet still tearing up the stages up and down the West Coast. Well, good news - Curtis got his liver transplant. Here is the blurb from the Portland Oregonian:
Portland musician Curtis Salgado received a new liver Saturday evening at an Omaha, Neb., hospital from a deceased donor. He had been planning on transplant surgery this week with a liver donated by a friend who had traveled with him to Omaha.
Curtis now has a much improved prognosis. I hope he can continue to perform after his recovery is complete.
