Hello, my name is Lara Macklin and I am excited you stopped by! As your Seattle area Chapter Coordinator I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our site as this is where your local connection to the PKD Foundation begins.

We are here to educate, inspire and support your efforts in managing PKD by connecting with others in the area, to learn about similar experiences, local resources and success stories. I can almost guarantee you will make some new friends as well! Meet patients and families in the Seattle area that have shared their voice with us

Below are the dates of our casual monthly meet-and-greets.  Feel free to come for a little or as long as you like and learn about the inspirational lives of others in the area living with PKD.  Our community here in Seattle is as diverse as the disease itself and passionately dedicated to helping the Foundation find treatments, and ultimately a cure for PKD, so that no one has to suffer the full effects of this disease.

While we all hope to never need their dialysis service, it sure is nice to know they're there AND will take good care of us! Thanks NKC!
