In celebration of 2018 National Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week, we hosted AVC fans for a great evening of food and fun at a pregame event in the exclusive Terrace Club at Progressive Field, then hoops, at the Quicken Loans Arena where co-founder Larry Nance Jr. and the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Sacramento Kings.
Before the game, Larry, Noah and Kaare Weber took to center court to present Dr. Robert Wyllie, Chief of Medical Operations at the Cleveland Clinic, Larry’s doctor and a known leader in the world of pediatric gastroentorology, $25,000 to be used for much needed IBD research and improving the patient experience at the Cleveland Clinic.
Larry was diagnosed and treated at the Cleveland Clinic at age 16, and is extremely thankful for the support of the medical staff and care team over the years, as he is now in remission! AVC is excited for the opportunity to give back to Dr. Wyllie and the Cleveland Clinic, as well at the IBD community, and inspire more young people batting Crohn’s and Colitis to continue to pursue their goals despite living with a chronic illness!
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our cause – we are grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness and make a difference in the IBD community!
