A note from your Chapter Coordinator:

The St. Louis Chapter strives to provide helpful information as you manage living with PKD. We meet the 2nd Monday of the month. Please join us! Our Chapter is here for you so contact us anytime at stlouischapter@pkdcure.org and visit our website for details of our education, support, or event planning meetings and fundraisers.

Our Chapter hosted education events and support/education meetings such as: "A Day of Learning" virtual conference, "I have PKD! Now What?", Clinical Trials, and "What is new with the PKD Foundation". 

We host several fundraisers (Kidney Fight Trivia Night in the spring, California Pizza Kitchen in June, and the Walk for PKD in September) throughout the year.

On July 13, we are having an Ice Cream Social Meeting. Three St. Louis Chapter Members have volunteered to share their kidney transplant experiences. Kris received her kidney from her brother 6 1/2 years ago. Mary received her kidney from her daughter 4 1/2 years ago. Roz received a kidney from a deceased donor 10 months ago. 

It isn’t too early to think about 2015 Walk for PKD. Join us on Sunday, Sept. 13 at Tower Grove Park. On-line registration opens June 10
