A Note from the Coordinator:

Greetings from the Nebraska Chapter, 

As we anxiously await spring we have already been discussing and planning Nebraska Chapter and Walk events.  We are excited to have more volunteers wanting to get involved.  We can do so much more together, UNITE TO FIGHT PKD.    Please be watching for emails and Facebook messages of upcoming events. 

 We would love to have everyone involved in the Chapter and Walk.  If you have an interest, please let me know and you will be welcomed. This year's PKD National Convention will be held in Orlando Florida at Disney.  This is a great event where you get to hear and meet the experts of PKD, meet the PKD Foundation Staff and the many people like us who live with PKD either themselves or their family.  

Upcoming events:

June 24-26- PKD National Convention Orlando Florida.  National Convention
