"Are you ready?? I just received a call informing me that the Patient Selection Committee for the Cleveland Clinic just gave their approval for me to obtain a kidney transplant under their care and i will officially be added to the national waiting list tomorrow! Once I'm listed, they will then call my cousin to schedule his one day of testing and arrange surgery dates ASAP!" #ENDPKD
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) — one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases — strikes both adults and children. It often leads to the need for dialysis and a kidney transplant. It affects thousands in America and millions worldwide, who are in urgent need of treatments and a cure.
PKD causes numerous cysts to grow in the kidneys. These cysts are filled with fluid. If too many cysts grow or if they get too big, the kidneys can become damaged. PKD cysts can slowly replace much of the kidneys, reducing kidney function and leading to kidney failure.
The annual Walk for PKD is the only nationally-run fundraising event
aimed at finding treatments and cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). For more about the annual Central Ohio Walk for PKD, visit walkforpkd.org/centralohio.
