Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready recently hit the road with his UFO tribute band Flight To Mars, raising awareness for Crohn's Disease and funding for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA). The band performs an annual benefit concert. "As a patient living with Crohn's and colitis, the CCFA has played a huge part in helping me get the support and information that I need," McCready says. "I'm grateful that my band mates and friends can support and join me for a night of music and fun that will help us find a cure for these debilitating diseases."
