Award winning bass player Sarah Brown has liver failure due to a non-alcoholic autoimmune disease and needs a lifesaving liver donation.

About Sarah:

Beloved Austinite, Sarah Brown, is a bassist, songwriter, and recording artist who has worked extensively with Blues legends and Americana artists across the globe for over 40 years.

In 2017 she was hospitalized due to severe stomach pain. Doctors removed her gall bladder and found scarring in her bile ducts. Sarah was diagnosed with the rare autoimmune disease PSC (primary sclerosing cholangitis). As of 2023, Sarah’s been hospitalized 7 times with worsening conditions and irreparable damage to her liver. The cause of PSC is unknown, and the only cure is a liver transplant.

Unfailingly humble and generous, Sarah let us make a FB page with the caveat that it benefits ALL people on the national liver waiting list, by spreading awareness and educating people about live donor transplants.

Here are some quick facts about Living Liver Donation:

-More than 11,000 people are on the national liver transplant waiting list.

-Nearly 20 people die each day while waiting for a lifesaving organ. A healthy person can safely donate up to 70% of their liver.

-The liver has the amazing ability to grow or regenerate within a few weeks.
