My name is Robert Attebery and I’m a 60-year-old enrolled member of the Karuk tribe in Northern California. I was diagnosed with PKD a few years back. My mother died at 75 of a burst aneurysm from complications of PKD. I’m at stage 3 right now operating at about a 40% GFR. I am our tribe’s enrollment officer, a traditional singer and dancer, and have been the priest in our annual spring salmon ceremony 12 times. I also co-parent a seven-year-old all while treating music like a second job. I’m trying to be an inspiration to people by being able to do all of this, all while battling the symptoms of PKD.
