THE STORY:

On November 6th, I will run the New York City Marathon to raise money for Polycystic Kidney Disease(PKD) research. The NYC Marathon will be my sixth full marathon, but I anticipate it to be my most memorable!

 

Why I Run for PKD

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an inherited disorder in which clusters of cysts develop within your kidneys and other organs.  Kidneys are usually the most severely affected organs, but polycystic kidney disease can also cause cysts to develop in your liver, spleen, pancreas, uterus,  and elsewhere. This disease can cause a variety of serious complications such as hypertension, mitral valve prolapse, brain aneurysms, diverticulosis, chronic pain, and end stage renal failure.

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is a inheritable disease, with an ADPKD parent having a 50% chance of passing this disease onto their children. Thus, ADPKD often affects multiple generations of a family.  PKD is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases, and yet no cure has been found.

I run to raise awareness and funds for the advancement of PKD research. I, along with my father and brother, have polycystic kidney disease. My greatest fear is that I have passed this disease onto my daughters, and that a cure will not be discovered in time to help them.  I ask you to please support our "Run for PKD" team and help fund PKD research. Let's END PKD once and for all!
