KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A Kansas City group wants to help patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) by raising funds and awareness. PKD is a genetic disorder that causes cysts to grow in the kidneys.
Nearly half of patients with PKD progress to kidney failure, and right now the only cure is a kidney transplant.
The PKD Foundation is leading the fight to bring a treatment and a cure to patients all over the world with the Kansas City Walk for PKD at Avila University on September 8.
