Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To promote research to find a cure for PKD and improve the care of treatment of those it affects.
The PKD Foundation is the only organization devoted to finding a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD). PKD is a genetic disease affecting generation upon generation of families and there is no cure. There is no cure, only treatment with dialysis and/or kidney transplant when the disease progresses to end stage renal failure.
PKD is the most common life threatening, genetic disease in the United States; more common than multiple sclerosis, sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis. Yet, it receives less government funding for research.
The Sacramento Chapter is new and its objectives, in addition to fundraising, is to organize support groups as well as educational opportunities for those affected with PKD.
PKD Foundation is also actively working towards legislation that would prevent insurance companies and/or employers from discriminating against those who have genetically-transmitted diseases in their family histories.
