Cleveland Clinic receives $2 million to endow Chair in colorectal surgery
Date:5/3/2013

Thursday, May 2, 2013, Cleveland: Kenneth M. Garschina and his wife, Sara Story, have pledged $2 million to Cleveland Clinic's Digestive Disease Institute to create an endowed chair for research in colorectal surgery. The donation coincides with the re-dedication of two previously funded endowed chairs.

Luca Stocchi, M.D., head of research of the Department of Colorectal Surgery, will be the first recipient of the Story Garschina Endowed Chair that will help fund research projects on colorectal, anal cancer, and outcome research studies.

"We are proud to support Cleveland Clinic's Digestive Disease Institute," Garschina said. "Over the years, the Institute's multidisciplinary approach to patient care has touched both the Story and Garschina families."

This is the second gift to Cleveland Clinic from a member of the Story family. In 2007, Ed Story, Sara Story's father, donated $1.5 million to Cleveland Clinic's Digestive Disease Institute to create an endowed chair for inflammatory bowel disease research and education. The Ed & Joey Story Endowed Chair was named in honor of Mr. Story and his wife, Joey Story. Feza Remzi, M.D., chairman of the Department of Colorectal Surgery, was the first recipient of the Ed & Joey Story Endowed Chair.

To reflect the team approach to patient care, the Ed & Joey Story Endowed Chair will now be held by Bo Shen, M.D., section head for Pouch Disorders in the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. This chair will continue to provide ongoing support to inflammatory bowel disease research, including surgical procedures to treat the disease.

"The Digestive Disease Institute is grateful for the generous gifts from the Story and Garschina families," said John Fung, M.D., Ph.D., chairman of Cleveland Clinic's Digestive Disease Institute. "Dr. Shen and Dr. Remzi, who both have a special interest in inflammatory bowel diseases, act as a unit when treating patients. Dr. Remzi's decisio
