Walk for PKD Ambassador

In October of 2016 my 2 month old daughter was diagnosed with ARPKD. The PKD Foundation was a great resource for our family as we began learning about the disease and our daughter’s future. I volunteer with the PKD Foundation to bring families together, create hope, and to someday find a CURE. Come walk with us!
