A note from your Chapter Coordinator:


The Tampa Chapter is finally hitting the calendar ahead of time to help make 2015 a success! Our PKD patients and their friends and families continue to be our top priority. We hope that you will continue to keep checking back at our Chapter webpage and local calendar. And be sure to follow our Facebook and Twitter pages so you too can stay-up to-date with new information, scientific studies, breaking news, and our national and local events. Managing PKD is tough, and having the PKD Foundation at your side, we hope will provide you a valuable resource to learn, as well as possibly find that much needed support. Our Chapter is here for you, with many folks that have been involved for years, so please contact us anytime at TampaChapter@pkdcure.org


We have planned our first Support meetings at Panera Bread, which we call our “Quarterly Coffee Break” which occur quarterly on the third Wednesday of that particular month.  These meetings are a great opportunity to meet others and share experiences. We always plan a topic for discussion and are open to hear what would interest you the most. Email us anytime with suggestions! 

It is not too early to be thinking about the 2015 Walk for PKD!  Join us in early October at the beautiful Fort Desoto Park for this year’s Tampa Walk for PKD! Registration opens in June. Watch your email for details and a link to register. We are always looking for new volunteers, so if this sounds appealing to you please feel free to contact us! I am truly looking forward to seeing you this year!
