Give PKD the Bump

Our mission is to improve the lives of an estimated 12.5 million people worldwide affected by PKD

Here you can find out more about Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and how we can work together to raise awareness and funds through the ‘Give PKD the Bump’ campaign.

What is PKD?

A healthy kidney is the size of a fist. With PKD it can swell to the size of a rugby ball

Despite an estimated 12.5 million people around the world being diagnosed with PKD, the disease remains relatively unheard of.
