Mission Statement

Our mission is to help find a cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) by raising awareness of the disease and funds for research. 80 cents from every dollar donated goes directly to funding research for a cure.

Description

PKD is the most common, life-threatening genetic disease. It affects more than 600,000 Americans, and 12.5 million people worldwide. 60% of patients will develop kidney failure and be forced to live on dialysis until they can receive a transplant. PKD affects more people than Down syndrome, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, sickle cell anemia and Huntington's disease - COMBINED! Have you ever heard of PKD before? Most people have not. Please help us find a cure.
