Yvonne Depatis-Kupka, wife of Stephen "Doc" Kupka of the Legendary Tower of Power needs a liver transplant.
By Dr. Al Carlos Hernandez

Steve Kupka is one of the founding members of the soul band Tower of Power. TOP, The Kings of East Bay Soul have been touring the world for over 42 years bringing their brand of horn fueled furious funk and sweet soulful ballads.
"Yvonne is on the California liver transplant list, seriously ill and urgently in need of this surgery. Simply put, the cost for this major surgery and post-operative care substantially exceeds her health insurance coverage and the family's resources. Major surgery shouldn't bankrupt a family or threaten to financially ruin their lives. So the Friends of Yvonne and Doc Kupka have organized this medical fund to help cover the uninsured portion of these extreme medical expenses.
