Austin Businesses and Rock Stars Band Together for Critically Needed Liver Transplant
AUSTIN, Texas, May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Former members of legendary rock band “Boston,” and Austin businesses including Brad Womack’s (The Bachelor) downtown 6th Street venues. AMFM Studios and others have joined together to promote Organ Donor Awareness for the sake of Tammy Miranda, an Austin booking agent who has learned she has less than a year to live. A benefit concert/silent auction featuring former lead singer of legendary supergroup “Boston”, Fran Cosmo, will be held June 19th at brand new venue The Stage on 6th Street.
Tammy has a rare autoimmune genetic condition that causes the liver to fail. She is caught in a catch-22 too many Americans can relate to – she makes too much money to qualify for Medicaid, and can’t buy insurance because her case is considered “catastrophic.”
Fran Cosmo, former lead singer of “Boston,” said “My brother Ralph had less than a month to live, but then had a double lung transplant! Now he is doing GREAT. I know in my heart that this is all going to turn out just as well for Tammy, I can feel it!”
Tammy Miranda said, “I am forming a foundation called the Tammy Miranda Transplant Org where people can benefit from the funds raised in my transplant account……I am hoping my website will live on to help people in this situation.”
Famous Vodka and Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka are donating $1 per drink sold at the Womack Brother’s venues to Team Tammy Miranda and the transplant fund.
