RAISE YOUR VOICE WITH US ON SEPT. 4
What is PKD Awareness Day?
Sept. 4 is PKD Awareness Day, a day to educate and inspire. There are many ways to show support — wear teal, spread the word, donate, volunteer, advocate.
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a chronic, genetic disease causing uncontrolled growth of fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys, often leading to kidney failure. With 600,000 Americans and millions worldwide living with PKD today, chances are high that you know someone with the disease.
Why raise PKD awareness?
The more people who know about PKD, the more people will want to get involved. And that means more resources we can dedicate to finding treatments and a cure. PKD Awareness Day is our opportunity to step up our efforts. It gives us a platform to share stories and encourage others to learn more. Let’s come together as a united front to spread the word wider than we ever have before.
Update your social media profiles and post about why we need to build awareness and support. We’ve gathered the following resources for you to share on social media to help you get started:
- Social profile pictures
- Social graphics
