Welcome to the PKD Foundation’s North Texas Chapter Website!  

Norman Franklin Sereboff of Dallas, Texas passed away on December 1, 2013. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland to the late Albert and Sallye Sereboff on August 16, 1940. He graduated from the University of Baltimore, putting himself through night school while working full time. In 1964 he married Susan Potash, the girl of his dreams, and they relocated to Dallas, Texas in 1967. Norm retired from AAFES in 1996 after a long and successful career as a systems analyst.

He was devoted to helping all those touched by PKD to find the resources and inner strength they needed. Norm was deeply loved and appreciated by many, most of all by his wife and children. He was a wonderful father and husband, always making family his first priority.

Norm is survived by Susan, his beloved wife of 49 years, children Scott and Stefani Sereboff of Dallas, Sherry Sereboff of Austin, Rony and Holly Batagower of Dallas, seven grandchildren, and his brother Joel Sereboff of Owing Mills, Maryland.

PKD Foundation Benefit Surpasses Financial Target
Oct. 14, 2013
Southlake Journal

Talk about hitting the finish line with success.

The North Texas Walk for PKD benefiting the national PKD Foundation, which is dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), was held recently at Rustin City Park in front of City Hall at Southlake Town Square.

Carolyn Morris and a team of volunteers worked to make this year’s fundraiser a success. And it clearly paid off. A record-breaking crowd donated more than $79,000 to the cause, exceeding the group’s target goal. The money will be donated to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation for research, education and awareness. The disease affects 600,000 Americans and has no cure. Well done all.
