Join me in my efforts to support PKD Foundation!

As many of you know, my mother and sister have PKD (polycystic kidney disease). PKD is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases, affecting more people than Down syndrome, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and sickle cell anemia - combined. Currently there is no treatment and no cure. So patients wait for their kidneys to fail and go on dialysis or hope for a kidney transplant.

Five years ago I donated one of my kidneys to my mother so she would not have to spend the rest of her life on dialysis. This year, my sister went on the transplant list and will probably have to wait an average of 4-5 years for a kidney donation. Therefore, I have decided to join the Walk for PKD.

The Walk for PKD is the signature fundraising event for PKD patient education and research… And you can join me by making a donation on my behalf.

The PKD Foundation is here to ensure that someday, no one suffers the full effects of PKD. The PKD Foundation aggressively seeks to convert:

• Ignorance into knowledge through high quality patient education materials
• Despair into hope through communications, support groups and research advances
• Isolation into community by involvement in more than 70 PKD Foundation chapters and by lobbying congress
• Ideas into reality through the research the Foundation funds and through clinical drug trials
• Basic science into therapies through ‘translational’ grants and the Foundation’s work with FDA
• Small dollars into large dollars by leveraging grants into expanded PKD National Institute of Health (NIH) research through ‘passionate advocacy’. And it is your financial support that makes this all possible. Please help me make a difference by making a donation today!
