From Walter’s wife, Marie:
My heart is breaking to make this posting. We have waited a bit to make sure – but Walter’s team of doctors have confirmed the diagnosis: Walter’s condition has worsened – he is now in full-fledged liver failure. If he does not get a new liver within the next few months – he will not make it. I have just reached out to all our cooperation partners and cancelled all Walter’s touring for 2014. He will not be allowed to travel for the next six months minimum and he will need lots of recovery time post-surgery. Walter is very, very ill currently and at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles where teams of the best surgeons and liver specialists are taking care of his survival until they can secure a high quality liver for him. I know that some of you have reached out previously with a desire to help Walter. A dear friend of ours, Kirby, has set up a donation account to help with the huge medical expenses. I can also update you on the details regarding Walter’s condition, and overall treatment from this account. Walter and I so appreciate all of your support – your love and your prayers for Walter at this difficult time.
