Jefferson Starship’s Mark "Slick" Aguilar In Need of a Liver Transplant

Jefferson Starship guitarist Mark “Slick” Aguilar has recently been diagnosed with Hepatitis C and is currently in need of a liver transplant. His band has helped set up a PayPal account where fans can donate and help Aguilar raise funds for the transplant. A message on their Facebook page says, “Mark ‘Slick’ Aguilar needs a liver transplant asap! Insurance only covers so much and there are many additional costs. Please help if you can, every little bit makes a difference.” Fans can click here to donate.

Aguilar’s resume includes stints with Wayne Cochran, Buddy Miles and David Crosby as well as KC & the Sunshine Band. He joined Jefferson Airplane singer Marty Balin’s solo group in 1985 and participated in the Airplane offshoot KBC Band in the ‘80s. Since 1992 he has been a member of Jefferson Starship.

I had Hep C (fibrosis) in 2004. I was so lucky to have realized something was wrong and had a liver biopsy. Went on The Phil Lesch site who also had a liver transplant and the people there were so supportive. I am happy to say that with medication, I am hep c free today! God bless you, Mark! I wish I had a dollar to give you but due to me having my left hip replaced on Dec. 11th, I am out of work. I will, however send prayers every day until you are well !!!
