Give Mike a Hand

I don't have to tell any of you how important this cause is to us... but we also know how much we have asked of all of you over the past year and a half! So, please - do not feel obligated to do anything other than read this message. Your support, every day, has meant the world to us and without you we would not be able to do our part to help the PKD Foundation spread the word about PKD and the effect it has on everyone with it and on everyone who cares about someone with it.

Mike and I will be walking this year, as we do every year, in solidarity with others who are affected by PKD, in support of those who research it, and with a sense of immense gratitude for how far we have come since last year at this time. It hasn't been an easy year, but we cannot imagine what it would have been like without all of you rooting for us, donating your time, your energy, and even... yes... A KIDNEY!!

PKD - Polycystic Kidney Disease - is one of the most common life-threatening genetic illnesses. It strikes both adults and children, men and women, around the world. It often leads to the need for dialysis and a kidney transplant. It affects thousands of Americans and millions worldwide - all of whom are in urgent need of treatment and a cure.

The Walk for PKD is the PKD Foundation's largest annual fundraising event. Funds raised from Walks across the country make up one third of their annual budget, 78% of which goes towards groundbreaking research and desperately needed education & advocacy programs.

You can help by joining the Walk as a participant, donating, volunteering... or simply continuing to support us as we move forward.

Thank you,
Samantha & Mike
