Hello, my name is Lara Macklin and I am excited you stopped by! As your Seattle area Chapter Coordinator I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our site as this is where your local connection to the PKD Foundation begins. We are here to educate, inspire and support your efforts in managing PKD by connecting with others in the area, to learn about similar experiences, local resources and success stories. I can almost guarantee you will make some new friends as well! We are passionately dedicated to helping the Foundation find treatments, and ultimately a cure for PKD, so that no one has to suffer the full effects of this disease. There is also an on-line support group site to allow for open conversations about PKD, ask questions and share thoughts with other Seattle locals. The site will be moderated and all posts should be relevant to PKD. If you would like to join this group please click on the link below and subscribe. We look forward to "meeting you" on-line!
