Northborough – Sisters and Northborough residents Nancy Turpin Powell and Kristen Turpin were diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) six years ago. PKD is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases, affecting thousands in the U.S. and millions worldwide. On Tuesday, June 4, the sisters are sponsoring the second annual Turpin Sisters PKD Golf Tournament at Wachusett Country Club in West Boylston to raise money to find new treatments and a cure for their disease. All proceeds will again be sent directly to the PKD Foundation. Last year's event raised approximately $28,000.
