Are You PKD Aware?

September is PKD Awareness month! It’s our chance to shine a light on the suffering, and the triumphs of those who live with Polycystic kidney Disease (PKD). Although the first case of PKD dates back to the death of the King of Poland in 1586, and affects millions around the globe, awareness and therefore understanding of the disease still remains very low. Throughout the month, and beyond, we’ll be featuring different PKD Voices. The stories of you; men, women, and children, each with a unique PKD experience to share. We do hope you’ll get involved in helping to spread the word.
