Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready has recorded a radio public service announcement series on behalf of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America to raise awareness for the chronic digestive disorders Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

“I have been living with Crohn’s disease for over 24 years,” says McCready. “Luckily, my disease is now under control. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for many of the 1 million-plus Americans suffering from IBD. I know firsthand the tremendous impact CCFA’s programs can have on improving Crohn’s and colitis patients’ lives.”

In the PSAs, Americans are encouraged to register for one of more than 130 Take Steps fundraising walks in 2011 in communities around the country.
