Welcome to the PKD Foundation’s Phoenix Chapter Website!
My name is Risa Simon and I’m thrilled you stopped by! As your Phoenix Chapter Coordinator, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit our site, as this is where your local connection to the PKD Foundation begins.
Our vision is pure and simple: We exist to educate, inspire and support your efforts in managing your disease continuum. You don’t have to “go it alone.” When you become a part of your local Phoenix PKD Chapter, your presence will allow you to make friends with other PKD patients and families to learn more about their experiences and success stories. Our educational events also allow you to learn from PKD-centered nephrologists and other special speakers. These sessions will empower you to take charge of your life, rather than letting valuable time pass you by.
Our goal is to transform your fear into purposeful action.
Our mission: Is for all PKD patients and their families to become a part of the SOLUTION! We are passionately dedicated to helping the Foundation find treatments - and ultimately a cure for PKD, so no one has to suffer the full effects of this disease.
Our Local Presence & Purpose: is to empower your process, so you can live the best life possible.
So what are you waiting for? Take that first step (if you haven’t already), and join our team today by emailing me at: email@example.com.
Living the dream, in the spirit of a better tomorrow,
Risa Simon, Phoenix Chapter Coordinator
