PKD Foundation News and Announcements
On March 28, 2015, PKD Foundation Chapters were invited to participate in an exclusive, online educational conference! PKD experts from across the United States discussed topics that are important to PKD patients. This year's focus was complications associated with PKD including aneurysms, hypertension, cardiovascular issues, cardiac valve abnormalities and polycystic liver disease. Not everyone that has PKD will experience every complication associated with the disease however, understanding these issues will help you to be your best advocate when you visit your physicians.
Local Events and Meetings
Chapter meetings are another opportunity for you to have your questions and concerns about PKD addressed. We will do our best to provide you with answers or direct you to someone that can assist you. Everyone is welcome!
Although the Detroit Chapter does not have any meetings planned at this time, we would still love to hear from you! If you have any questions concerning support meetings, please email our Volunteer Chapter Coordinator Elizabeth at email@example.com.

Kids Made Their Mark at the 2014 Detroit Walk!
Kids are helping to lead the way to a better tomorrow. Our top fundraiser is Dante Houseworth of Troy. Dante, 12 years old, wanted to join the Walk for PKD when he found out about his mom's friend who is affected with PKD and is anxiously waiting for a kidney donor. He reached his goal by cutting grass.
A big thanks to all of our fundraisers for your hard work and thoughtfulness!
