Hello, my name is Erica Herrera and I will be using CaringBridge to provide updates on my mother's journey. She has Polytheistic Kidney Disease, an inherited disorder in which cluster of cysts develop in the kidney. PKD does not have a cure and is often treated with dialysis and then a kidney transplant.The first step of this journey will be a bilateral nephrectomy, the removal of both kidneys, on November 22,2019. I will use the journal page to keep everyone updated on her recovery.
