Meet Sonia Chies
Sonia is the Edmonton Chapter Coordinator. She lost her mother to PKD in 2014. Her mother's dream was to find a cure for PKD by the time her grandchildren were older, and Sonia fights diligently to make that dream come true.
Watch Sonia's full story:
ADPKD is the most common inherited renal disorder worldwide, impacting approximately 1 in every 500 Canadians. An estimated 45% to 70% of patients with ADPKD progress to end-stage renal disease by age 65 years.
