A message from our Volunteer Chapter Coordinator:

I'm excited to join the team and truly looking forward to being the volunteer coordinator for our San Antonio Chapter. The Walk is always a fun event, and our 2015 Walk in September is going to be fantastic. The money and awareness that is raised through the Walk for PKD is very important to me personally. As a young man I saw the effects of PKD first hand. I saw my beautiful, talented, and intelligent mother in pain and agony. The effect on our family was a tremendous hardship, and we faced some very difficult years. Once diagnosed properly, and with the right treatment her spirit and health have improved. Now that I have the opportunity, I see the importance of being involved with the PKD community. I look forward to meeting all of you, and feel free to reach out to me anytime.
