Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer, Greg Allman, is marking the one-year anniversary of his liver transplant by announcing a special benefit concert to raise money to fight hepatitis C. Allman says he is doing the show because to many people with hepatitis C aren’t doing anything about it.

 I want to tell them, don’t wait. Doing nothing is not an option; they need to talk with their doctor,” said Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. “I made the decision to take action and talk to my doctor, so that I could get back to making the music I love. I want others to take that action too, and if I can help make that happen, I’ve done my job.” JamBase.com

More than three-million Americans have chronic hepatitis C which can damage the liver over time and lead to cirrhosis, end-stage liver disease and liver cancer. What makes hepatitis C so dangerous is approximately 60 to 80 percent of people infected don’t have any symptoms.

The Allman Brothers will perform in New York on July 27th to raise awarness and funds for charities that treat people with this deadly disease.
