Mission Statement

The mission of the Chapters of the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation is to assist, on a regional and local basis, the national efforts of the PKD Foundation to determine the cause, improve clinical treatment, and discover a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD). The Chapters focus on the following five key areas: 1. The Gift of One Another. Chapters assist patients and their family members by encouraging, providing information, and listening. 2. Public Awareness. Chapters foster public awareness of PKD and distribute information about the disease to patients, the public, the medical community, and the media. 3. Education. Chapters educate others about polycystic kidney disease by hosting educational seminars. 4. Fund-Raising. Chapters attract individuals, corporations, and foundations interested in financially supporting PKD research, education, awareness, and membership. 5. Action Alert. Chapters help lobby for increased federal funding of PKD research at the National Institutes of Health.

Description

We are a group comprised of PKD patients, their families, and friends who reside in all areas of Western Pennsylvania. We meet on a monthly basis in Monroeville, PA. where we provide support and education to our members. We also conduct fund-raisers to help raise much needed research monies to find a treatment and a cure for PKD.
