Walk for PKD Ambassador
I have been volunteering at the Walk for PKD for years. I am involved with the Foundation because I was diagnosed with PKD when I was very young, and have seen the destruction it can cause firsthand. Thankfully, my mom received her transplant five years ago after almost seven years on dialysis, but I have also lost family members to PKD. I am passionate about telling anyone and everyone I can about what PKD is and encouraging them to get involved so that we can find a cure to this terrible disease.
