Amy's 92.9 Army
Hi! Amy Brooks from Alt 92.9 here. Welcome to Amy's 92.9 Army's PKD Walk Team Page!
I am setting up this page just 2 weeks post kidney transplant after Polycystic Kidney Disease knocked out my native kidneys. I have a new kidney now and a new lease on life and I'm feeling GREAT thanks to my incredible angel donor and dear friend Sandra Macinnis of Framingham, who offered to be tested a year ago and turned out to be a near perfect match to me. Which has made my transplant and recovery seemless.
But I am a fortunate one. Upon refelction, I have learned that there are too many who suffer from this same disease and aren't quite as fortunate. So after 32 years with PKD, I am finally giving back and I won't stop until there is a cure.
First step - develop a Walk TEAM, and this is our page. Amy's 92.9 Army will walk this September in Boston to help raise money and awareness to help those suffering with this difficult disease by giving money to researchers to find a cure.
If you'd like to join our team we would love to have you! If you'd simply like to donate, great! No token or doantion is too great or too small. AND ANYONE WHO DONATES WILL BE ENTERED TO WIN AN ELECTRIC GUITAR SIGNED BY THE AMAZING GAVIN ROSSDALE AND HIS BAND BUSH.
Believe it or not PKD is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases. It strikes both adults and children. It typiclly leads to kidney failure, (like it did for me), and ya need your kidneys! It affects thousands in America and millions worldwide, who are in urgent need of treatments, aa transplant and most preferrably... a cure!
The more money our walkers raise, the more we can do in the fight to end PKD!
You can help by joining the Walk as a participant, volunteer or donor.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and from all of us in Amy's 92.9 Army!
