My Message

I’m volunteering at the Toronto 2019 Walk to END PKD!

There is no cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).  If there was a cure, those suffering from the disease would not have the on-going anxiety thinking about what will happen when their kidneys fail. Many people with PKD suffer depression, anxiety and live every day anticipating what will they do when their day arrives.

1 out of 500 Canadians have PKD – It is the best kept secret.

I have PKD.  After 30 years of taking medications, managing blood pressure, surgeries, and most of all trying to stay positive as possible for the inevitable, the time arrived; my kidneys failed.  This past August I received a kidney from a very dear friend. I am truly blessed to now enjoy good health and a better quality of life. However, I still have the disease, which means the kidneys will continue to grow bigger of the cysts.  THERE IS NO CURE.

I will be volunteering at the walk on September 29th.  Please kindly consider sponsoring me with donations made directly to PKD research. We need to find a cure.

To make a secure donation online, click the DONATE NOW button on the top right corner of this screen. 

Thank you for your consideration !

Janet

Hi Janet: Sorry this is a little late. I have had a very busy fall and just realized that the walk had already taken place. Glad you raised more than your goal. Hugs to you and the family.
