Calendar Local Events and Meetings

 Meeting Chapter Meetings

 

Chapter meetings provide an 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!

We don't have any meetings scheduled at this time but we would still like to hear from you. If you have any questions concerning our meetings, please email our Volunteer Chapter Coordinator, Laura, at northernindianachapter@pkdcure.org. 


Kidney Korner......"You've got someone in your corner"

While having family and friends to turn to can make a huge difference for people dealing with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or life on dialysis, sometimes it isn’t enough. Talking to others who are going through the same experiences as you can be a much-needed opportunity to vent, share information, get advice and receive and provide support.

Nowadays, support groups can be found in all sorts of places. One great place to connect with others is on a conference call. This discussion forum with your kidney friends through the PKD Foundation is a place where people with chronic kidney disease, those on dialysis (either at home or at a center), as well as family members and friends of those with kidney disease, can talk. Some topics include:  Share Your Experiences, Lifestyle, Education and Caregiver Support. Also, it ok if you don't feel comfortable sharing but want to hear others and what their experiences are.  There is no wrong or stupid question or comment.  Just kidney buddies chatting. 

There’s no cost to join us, although you will need to register here to get your personal connections to join us.  Give me a shout out if you have some ideas for a subject you would like to discuss as well. 

Come join us! At our meetings, you will find a great group of caring, supportive people who all have been touched by PKD in some way and who are willing to share their knowledge of the disease. We also host guest speakers and leaders in the field of PKD that help us continue our ongoing educational awarenees program. Check back for updates and upcoming meetings and locations.

Plan your own Event!

All of the events that take place in the Northern Indiana PKD Foundation Chapter, large or small, happen because someone decided to organize them. We often receive checks from people who have put together a craft fair, bake sale, gotten their business to sponsor a casual day or any of a dozen other things. You can send your money earned to the PKD Foundation immediately (no need to hold it) and it will be deposited right away for you. Just let us know if you need help with any of this.

There are also people who have decided they have the time and energy to put on a major event or who are connected to a church or school group who help them put on a major event. Many other charities are starting to connect with sororities, fraternities, or other social organizations to put on an annual event and you can too!

If you have an idea for an event that you would like to put together, or if you have a business, church or community group that may like to get involved, please contact us at northernindianachapter@pkdcure.org and we'll help you get the ball rolling.
