ABOUT THE BENEFIT
Cleveland native and creative, Max Radenkov, son of artist and craftsman Zivko Radenkov, has been battling a severe form of refractory Crohn’s Disease and Inflammatory Arthritis for over fifteen years.
After an acute onset of symptoms, hospital stays, failure to treat, and misdiagnosis in the months before, Max, now 23, was diagnosed at the age of 7. Over the years he has tried countless treatments and therapies and has had several semi-successful surgeries, none of which have resulted in an improved quality of life. In Max’s words, “the only thing consistent in my lifestyle and well-being is inconsistency itself.”
Due to severe side effects, Max has remained off most medications and is therefore seeking new solutions to improve his quality of life. Through the pandemic, health complications, and financial hardships, Max has maintained hope and worked with great diligence to gain control of his condition. With the help of his loving father, family, and team at the Cleveland Clinic, he looks toward his future.
With new medical advances being made every day, Max is hopeful that his condition can continue to improve. Promising new treatments are becoming available, however expense is an increasingly significant barrier. With proper funding, Max will have access to new treatments and can expand his team to include more professionals in the field.
It is with genuine pleasure that Bonfoey announces a benefit to support Max in his journey toward a better quality of life. 101 Wishes: A Benefit for Max will be a silent auction featuring 101 artworks from 81 nationally known artists, craftspeople, and galleries generously donating to the cause. With the auctioning of these works, we hope to raise $60,000 to assist with Max’s future medical expenses.
All pieces available for auction can be viewed and bid on at Bonfoey Gallery or at www.bonfoey.com/exhibitions/17-101-wishes-a-benefit-for-max/works/ as of Monday, September 12th and all bidding will close on Friday, September 23rd.
101 Wishes: A Benefit for Max is sponsored by St. Vitus Endowment Corporation, a bona fide 501(c)3. Accordingly, all proceeds raised and all monetary transactions will be conducted by a representative from St. Vitus. St. Vitus will then be responsible for allocating all raised funds to be used for medical expenses.
