It's time to Give PKD the Bump - first-ever European PKD Awareness Campaign
'Give PKD the Bump' has launched
Support our first-ever European PKD Awareness & Fundraising Campaign organised by the PKD Charity and PKD patient organisations in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland to spread the word about Polycystic Kidney Disease and raise funds for much-needed research.
The campaign is called 'Give PKD the Bump'. We're using the symbol of a 'fist' as our logo. Normal, healthy kidneys are the size of a fist. PKD kidneys can swell up to 4 times in size and 100 times heavier. We want our PKD kidneys to return to normal size and be healthy again. So get your fists out and join us to 'Give PKD the Bump'!
How you can get involved and help #BumpPKD
