Meet Your Chapter Coordinator

 Meet Nina Young

Nina is the Corner Brook Chapter Coordinator. She was diagnosed with PKD at the age of 12. Since then, she's witnessed six of her nine family members pass as a result of the disease, including her mother.

Despite her prognosis, regular hospital visits and frequent complications, Nina is committed to spreading awareness and helping to find a cure for PKD.
