About us

Thank you for visiting the Portland Chapter page 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. You will probably make some new friends as well!

Our community in Portland is as diverse as the disease itself and passionately dedicated to helping the Foundation find treatments, and ultimately a cure for PKD.
