Pearl Jam Guitarist Tells Of Life With Crohn’s

lead guitarist Mike McCready has opened up about his battle with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis with Young Chang
of the Seattle Times. “I don’t want this disease to overcome me,” the 37-year-old said. “This disease lives with me, I don’t live with it.” He wants to encourage others with IBD, especially kids. “They have to go to school, they have to deal with the embarrassment, it’s just a real drag,” McCready said. “I haven’t had as much suffering as some of the people that I’ve met.” On Monday (May 12), McCready addressed the third annual Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Luncheon at the Seattle Westin Hotel.
