I joined the PKD Pittsburgh Chapter over 10 years ago after being diagnosed. With such a great group of people in the Chapter, taking on a leadership role was easy. While PKD impacts all of our lives, we work hard to hopefully lessen the impact on our children and grandchildren.

Three generations of my family have been affected by PKD and in 2013, I had a successful kidney transplant. I have been involved with the Pittsburgh Chapter for more than 10 years, and Walk Coordinator from 2009–2018. I have met so many people and made good friends through my association with the Foundation — it is a great source of networking and support for those with PKD!
