Polycystic kidney disease (or PKD) is a range of inherited, incurable and often serious renal conditions that also affect the liver, brain and other organs. There are two forms of PKD: the more common Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) affects up to 70,000 adults and children in the UK, while the rarer Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD) is usually diagnosed in babies and young children, and affects about 600-1000 (20-40 births per year).

Buy your #PKDballoons in support of PKD Awareness Month
The more who know about PKD, the more resources we can dedicate to finding treatments and a cure. PKD Awareness Month is our opportunity to step up our efforts and gives us a platform to widely spread the word, share stories and encourage others to learn more.
Starting on 4 September with #PKDAwarenessDay in Canada, you can get involved during #PKDAwarenessMonth this September by buying your virtual #PKDballoons today in solidarity with people across the world who are living with PKD.
What your #PKDballoons will buy
Help us to raise funds for essential medical research and provide support services for people with PKD. We give grants to researchers working on the causes of PKD and identifying treatments. We raise awareness about the burden of PKD. We help patients and families to cope with their difficult journey, providing them with access to information about PKD, putting them in touch with others in a similar position, and offering a friendly and reassuring ear when they feel helpless or overcome with emotion.
Your #PKDballoons will enable us to continue this vital work.
