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.
