What is PKD?
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a chronic, genetic disease causing uncontrolled growth of fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys, often leading to kidney failure. With 66,000  Canadians and millions worldwide living with PKD today, chances are high that you know someone with the disease.

Why raise PKD awareness?

The more who know about PKD, the more resources we can dedicate to finding treatments and a cure. PKD Awareness Day is our opportunity to step up our efforts and gives us a platform to widely spread the word, share stories and encourage others to learn more. On PKD Awareness Day, let's come together as a united front to spread the word about this disease further than we ever have before!

Raise your voice online using #PKDAwarenessDay and #Sept4.
