Welcome to the Seattle Chapter!

About us

Outstanding Chapter Coordinator 2016We 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. We can almost guarantee you will make some new friends as well. Meet patients and families in the Seattle area that have shared their voice with us.

Our community here in Seattle is as diverse as the disease itself and 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.
