PKD Awareness Month
September is #PKDAwareness Month. As you know, around 70,000 people are affected by PKD in the UK. The more people who know about PKD, the more resources we can dedicate to finding treatments and a cure. PKD Awareness Month 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.
