Virtual ChapterConnect. Support. Educate.

With the help of PKD Foundation Chapters in cities across the country, the PKD Foundation provides a forum for patients who want to join in the fight to find treatments and a cure for PKD. If you live in an area that does not have a local Chapter, the Virtual Chapter provides an opportunity for you to connect with patients and their loved ones, take part in programs and join the fight from your own computer. To be part of the Virtual Chapter, please contact us at virtualchapter@pkdcure.org.

Welcome to the Our Virtual Chapter!

Thank you for visiting our Web page! Part of the PKD Foundation's mission is to provide programs of support and education to patients as we work towards a treatment and a CURE for PKD.  We currently have 60+ Chapters that support PKD patients and their friends and families in cities across the country yet, we understand that we cannot meet the needs of all patients with our volunteer led Chapters alone. That is why we are launching the Virtual Chapter!  Beginning January 2014, patients from all cities across the United States can join together, virtually, in support of each other. That is really what the Virtual Chapter is all about!

As we work to ensure that all patients have a place to find the education and support they need, we do want to hear from you! Take our brief survey and tell us how the Virtual Chapter can better assist you.

With your support, we can take steps toward a future without PKD.
