Mission Statement

Today, we are the only organization, worldwide, devoted to determining the cause, improving clinical treatment and discovering a cure for PKD. We work to develop funding for peer-approved biomedical research projects. In addition, we engage committees and legislators within the United States Congress to promote the importance of PKD research conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our purpose is to bridge the gap between ignorance and knowledge about PKD by promoting programs of research and fostering awareness among medical professionals, corporations, foundations and the general public. We also provide the only regular source of PKD information and offer the only complete forum for patient education anywhere in the world.

Description

The North Texas Friends of the Polycystic Kidney Research Foundation provide information and support for patients and families touched by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). We provide informative seminars to educate people about PKD and perform fundraising activities to raise funds for research towards a treatment and cure for PKD.
