Why I volunteer- Yvonne DiCarlo Clemens
“So, while I’m waiting for my miracle pill, I want to do all I can to help those in need of transplants. I'm getting involved with the PKD Foundation to increase awareness, education, support, advocacy and fund raising so that dialysis will become a thing of the past. I do this for myself, my children, my grandchildren, and for you”.
