For National Kidney Month, we challenge the PKD community to take action to spread the word about polycystic kidney disease (PKD). PKD is a chronic, genetic disease that causes fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys that often lead to kidney failure. There is no cure. In 2018, the very first ADPKD treatment in the United States was approved by the FDA, but we still have so much to do! 

Use your social media to raise awareness of polycystic kidney disease.
