In October of 2018, Jack Hunt, aka Johnny Angel of Johnny Angel and the Halos, posted on social media that his wife, Mary Lou, was in dire need of a live liver donor. The post received thousands of shares and views. In February of 2019, it was revealed to the family that a non-family donor, Sarah Booz, had been found and the transplant surgery was being scheduled. Two months later, Mary Lou Hunt was the recipient of the live liver transplant at UPMC Presbyterian. July 2019, we are gaining our wife, mom, grandmother, sister, and friend back!
Let that sink in. The family is still processing the generosity and selflessness of the entire Booz family. So, in true Pittsburgh style, what do you do? GIVE BACK! With the support from the Community Liver Alliance, and it’s promotion of liver health, the Jack Hunt family, along with Ya Jagoff Media is hosting a community and family-oriented music festival to include some of Pittsburgh music’s greats to raise awareness and give back to those who give the most!
