Mission Statement

The PKD Foundation is the only organization, worldwide, dedicated to promoting research to find a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and improving the care and treatment of those it affects. Our vision is that "no one suffers the full effects of PKD."

Description

In 2007, the PKD Foundation will fund more than $4.2 million in vital PKD research and lobby the federal government for millions more. In addition to funding research, the PKD Foundation provides a forum for patients, family and friends through more than 70 volunteer-led Chapters across the country and the world and holds the annual Walk for PKD, held each year on the third weekend in September, and the National Convention on PKD, the only conference in the world for PKD patients and medical professionals.
