A Message From Your Chapter Coordinator
Greetings from Minnesota! I recently became the Chapter Coordinator for our state. I have PKD and am currently one of the subjects in the Tolvaptan study. PKD has had quite an impact on my family as my uncle died at 55 and my dad at 72 from complications of this disease. I am interested in doing all I can to raise awareness of the struggle patients and families face with PKD. Please join with me in our work to find a cure for PKD. Contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
We had an amazing time at the Transplant Games of America! Thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth and shared your transplant story with us. Congratulations to everyone that participated in the games!

The holiday season is fast approaching, which means lots of family get-togethers, dinners and company parties. With food being a primary focus during these social gatherings, it can be a challenge for people with kidney disease to stick with their kidney-friendly diet. Join us for this webinar to learn how to maintain your kidney diet, while still enjoying the most delicious time of the year. Jacob Taylor will also discuss his PKD Diet Study.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
