We are thrilled to announce that Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman, national spokesperson for the Tune In to Hep C campaign, has been nominated for "Best Blues Album" for the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards.
This is a remarkable achievement in and of itself, but even more so when you consider that only a year and a half ago Gregg Allman had a liver transplant from liver failure because of chronic hepatitis C infection.
Allman partnered with the American Liver Foundation and Merck in June 2011 when we announced the launch of the Tune In to Hep C campaign. Since then he has worked hard to bring attention to this silent disease using his voice to help others understand that doing nothing is not an option.
This recognition of Allman’s work provides an important reminder to us all, even though most of us will never be nominated for a GRAMMY®. It reminds us that it is possible to overcome this potentially serious disease and continue to do the things you love.
We want to congratulate Gregg on this tremendous achievement and to thank him for his continued commitment to this important campaign. He was one of the first celebrities to come forward and talk about this disease, breaking decades of silence. We are forever grateful for his courage to share his story with others, and we look forward to our continued collaboration.
