Walk for PKD Ambassador

Welcome to the Baltimore Community. I volunteer with the foundation to share my experiences as a transplant patient and parent of PKD. By working as a Walk Ambassador I am able to help spread awareness about this life threatening disease and help raise funds for further research. Together we can unite to fight PKD!
