ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Polycystic Kidney disease is one of the most common genetic diseases worldwide.
PKD affects both children and adults, and often results in a need for dialysis or a kidney transplant. Right now, there's no treatment or cure for PKD, but the PKD Foundation hopes to change that.
Sunday, a nationwide Walk for PKD will be held, and St. Louis is one of a number of cities taking part in it.
Volunteer Traci Short spoke to NewsChannel 5 at Noon about the walk and how people can help.
