Mission Statement

The PKD Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to provide research and education in polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and improving the quality of life for PKD patients. The ultimate goal is to find a cure for PKD.

Description

PKD affects about 1 in 500 persons and is the most common genetic, life threatening disease. Growth of numerous cysts on both kidneys generally results in kidney failure, requiring dialysis or transplantation. There is currently no treatment or cure for PKD. Our chapter activities will focus on a variety of events to help educate and support those affected by PKD, to make the public more aware of the disease, to lobby our legislators for more NIH funding for PKD research, and to conduct our own fund raisers for PKD research.
