INFO ABOUT THE DISEASE & FOUNDATION
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the world's most common, life-threatening genetic diseases with over 600,000 Americans and 12.5 million people worldwide suffering. It causes fluid-filled cysts to form throughout the kidneys, eventually leading to kidney failure. Dialysis and transplantation are the only treatment options for kidney failure; there is no cure for PKD!
The not-for-profit PKD Foundation leads the fight against PKD through research funding, advocacy, patient education, and support. In 2008 the PKD Foundation will fund approximately $4 million in vital PKD research.
