What is polycystic kidney disease?

       Polycystic kidney disease (also called PKD) causes numerous cysts to grow in the kidneys. These cysts are filled with fluid. If too many cysts grow or if they get too big, the kidneys can become damaged. PKD cysts can slowly replace much of the kidneys, reducing kidney function and leading to kidney failure.

Here is a little summary of how PKD has affected our family.

In 2016 I went into Kidney failure and ended up on diaylisis, one month later I got a kidney removed to make room for my transplant. In Feb. 2017 I got a kidney transplant, and today I am forever thankful to my dear wife for donating to make this possible.

My sister who is a year younger then myself will be starting dialysis this month, and hopefully a transplant in the near future.

My second sister and daughter also have PKD but so far show no side affects from the disease.

Our Dad also had it, but did not affect him. He passed away 18 years ago but not PKD related.

The Walk to END PKD is the PKD Foundation of Canada’s signature fundraising event, raising over $1,365,000 since 2007. Our supporters have helped move us closer to finding treatments and a cure. The money also helps provide education and support services, both online and in local communities. Great strides have been made, but we need your help in keeping the momentum going. We can exceed the $175,000 raised last year by recruiting more participants and engaging every walker in fundraising. With your help, we can look forward to a time when no one will have to suffer the full effects of PKD.

Sign up today and help us END PKD! Remember – every dollar raised brings us that much closer to the ultimate finish line: A cure for PKD!

Thanks so much for donating Willie Van Dyk
