Las Vegas Chapter
Welcome to the PKD Foundation’s Las Vegas Chapter Website!
A Message from your new Chapter Coordinator:
My name is Amy Boyd and I am the new Las Vegas Chapter Coordinator. I have been married to the most amazing man for over 17 years and we have been blessed with four beautiful children. PKD became a part of our lives on October 19, 2009 when our daughter was diagnosed. I know how overwhelming it can be when first diagnosed. The internet can be a scary place when you are seeking information, especially medical information. When I came across the PKD Foundation I felt I truly had a place to turn. Not only as a source of information, but for support as well. I am excited to be a part of the foundation. I want to spread the word about PKD and the need for research and funding.
Please join me in spreading the message. I would love your help in this fight.
Better Together at the PKD National Convention

This June, the PKD community will unite in Kansas City for three days of relationship building, education and fun. Join us as we hear from experts in the field, including Gregory G. Germino, M.D. of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health and leading ARPKD expert Lisa Guay-Woodford, M.D. Whether you are a PKD patient, caregiver or family member we know you will walk away from the Convention with new connections, friends and practical tips for managing your health or supporting a loved one.

Transplant Games of America
July 11 - 15, 2014
The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event for individuals that have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. The games are more than an athletic event! They highlight the importance of organ donation and celebrate the lives of organ donors and recipients. For more information about the 2014 Transplant Games of America and to register to participate, visit www.transplantgamesofamerica.org.
The PKD Foundation plans to attend the 2014 games to celebrate with PKD patients that have received a kidney transplant, living kidney donors and their families. If you plan to participate, please take our brief survey!
The Las Vegas Chapter does not have any meetings scheduled at this time but we do want to hear from you. If you would like to connect with our Volunteer Chapter Coordinator, please email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
