A Message From Your 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.
