Some celebrities who underwent liver transplants...
Steve Jobs - Apple Computers (originally had a tumor in his pancreas, which then spread to the liver before he died)
David Crosby - Crosby Stills & Nash (he’s still touring)
John Phillips - The Mamas and Papas
Evel Kneivel - Motorcycle Stunt Man
Mickey Mantle - Baseball Player
Jack Bruce - Bass Player for the Cream
Shelley Fabares - Actress
Freddy Fender - Singer (deceased)
Billy Graham - Pro Wrestler
Larry Hagman - Actor (TV series Dallas)
Phil Lesh - Founder of the Grateful Dead
Jim Nabors - Actor
Linda Lovelace - Porn Star
Robert Casey - Governor of Pennsylvania

As an added note, Tennessee has the shortest waiting period for liver transplants. That’s where Steve Jobs went...

Yes, I forgot. I believe he only lasted 4 months or so post-transplant. There are reasons people have to have their livers transplanted again. I consider myself lucky. A friend in Chicago should consider himself very lucky. He had a transplant a year before me and recently survived a double pneumonia. The beat goes on for me...
