My wife is joining me to run @LAmarathon for my sis who has #PKD, a terrible kidney disease. Please help us help her. http://bit.ly/wMar3q  See more

THE STORY:

My sister is suffering Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). PKD affects an estimated 1 in 500 people. It is characterized by the presence of multiple cysts that are fluid-filled, resulting in massive enlargement of the kidneys and eventual renal failure. Currently, there is no cure, and transplants are necessary to prevent something I don't want to even think about. My sister's kidneys are operating at below 20%. I am running for her. I am running to kick this disease's ass.
