Walk for PKD

Today we participated in our 7th walk for PKD for the PKD Foundation!!! Our team the Three Peas in a Pod had 47 walkers and at this point have raised over $14,800. In a week with a lot of controversy with various organizations and the loss of a special boy, Zane, to ARPKD I am trying to stay hopeful that there will one day be treatments and maybe even a cure for this disease.

Why I walk:
I walk for my boys… The Three Peas in a Pod. I walk to advocate for them and to raise funds and awareness for ARPKD. I walk to honor all of the children living with ARPKD. I also walk to remember all of the babies and children who have passed away from this disease that currently has no treatments and no cure. And I especially walk for hope. Hope that more doctors will be educated on ARPKD, hope that more babies will survive and live with ARPKD, hope that treatments will be found, hope that even a cure will be found some day, and especially hope for my boys and their future.
