A Message From Your Chapter Coordinator

Greetings from Minnesota!  I recently became the Chapter Coordinator for our state.  I have PKD and am currently one of the subjects in the Tolvaptan study.  PKD has had quite an impact on my family as my uncle died at 55 and my dad at 72 from complications of this disease.  I am interested in doing all I can to raise awareness of the struggle patients and families face with PKD.  Please join with me in our work to find a cure for PKD.  Contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

Thank you,
Pam Oster
