Dear Friends and Family,
As many of you may know, I have been struggling with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) for many years. I was first diagnosed with PKD over 30 years ago. This genetic and life-threatening disorder has already claimed the life of my mother and oldest brother. Today I have less than 18% kidney function and need a new kidney urgently. Otherwise, I’ll have to start dialysis— a process that compromises any future transplant and can shorten my lifespan.

Best of luck, David! Have courage and be strong.
