Welcome to the Detroit Chapter!

About us

With the help of our Chapters in cities across the country and beyond, we provide a forum for patients who want to join in the fight to find treatments and cure for PKD. Connect with us to find out how you can make a difference in the lives of thousands in the U.S. and millions worldwide.

Cheryl Sherman of St. Clair County, is our Detroit Chapter Coordinator. Her passion is mentoring and supporting others, touching one person’s life at a time. She is excited to work on events and meetings to offer support to the community and share experiences. 

Mike Ahrens of Ann Arbor is our Detroit Chapter Co-Coordinator. Mike is dedicated to supporting all areas of the chapter. He enthusiasm is planning events to grow the Detroit Chapter and Annual Walk to promote support, awareness and fundraising to improve all the lives of those it affects.

Lisa Mohr of Mayville is our Detroit Walk for PKD Coordinator. Lisa is very dedicated to raising critical funds needed to support the PKD Foundation’s mission. She continues to grow the Annual Walk for PKD and touch as many lives as possible.

Volunteer Work Matters: We take pride in knowing that the PKD Foundation mission is making a great impact in helping millions of lives affected with PKD. We feel confident that our future generations will not suffer the full effects of PKD.

Having a PKD supporter friend to connect with in person, phone, or text helps make coping a little easier. Contact any of your Detroit Coordinators at the emails in their bios below.
