For Judy Ashley’s Family, ADPKD Impact Spans Generations, Sparks Advocacy Work in Community

Judy Ashley is one of four siblings living with PKD. The family lost their mother when she was just 61, due to complications from dialysis. All five family members and one of Ashley’s nieces received transplants. “My energy now goes to empowering my daughter to be her own advocate,” Ashley explained. “I keep telling her, if it doesn’t make sense, if you don’t agree with [the treatment plan] keep asking questions.”
