June 20, 2010: Kidney Disease Hope
Since 1982, the PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) Foundation has been building to this moment - this pivotal tipping point - when treatments for PKD are truly, finally, within reach.
The progress has been significant. The PKD Foundation has come a long way since its first year funding research - one grant for only $25,000. In 2009, the PKD Foundation funded 32 projects in five countries for a total of nearly $2 million.
We talked with local members of the foundation to get up to date on its progress and learn more about its work.
