Welcome to the Hamilton Chapter!
My name is Joy Pekar and I am one of the Hamilton Chapter Coordinators. Both my husband and his mother have PKD, and I first became involved with the PKD Foundation of Canada as a way to learn more about this disease. As my husband's illness progressed, I was grateful for the resources that the Foundation provided, and as I watched his kidney fail, I became even more motivated to raise funds to support research in the hopes that one day no one will experience the detrimental effects of this disease. I love that the PKD Foundation of Canada create a circle of support where members can learn from each other's experiences and support each other through their journeys.
I hope you can join us for our next meeting or event!
Working for a cure,
Hamilton Chapter Coordinator
