The Periwinkle Foundation develops and provides programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults and families who are challenged by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and are cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital.
Since The Periwinkle Foundation’s inception in 1983, pediatric oncologists have made great strides in improving the overall cure rate of children with cancer. Nearly 80 percent of children diagnosed with cancer now survive. While more children are surviving, successful treatment may leave them with mental or physical complications that can impact them for the rest of their lives. Periwinkle Programs play a vital role in the overall healing process of these special children, teens and families.
Each year more than 4,000 children are touched by Periwinkle programs Camp Periwinkle, CampYOLO, Family Camp, Camp Periwinkle in the City, the Long Term Survivor Program and the Periwinkle Arts In Medicine Program which culminates each year in a traveling exhibition of art by children touched by cancer and blood disorders. Through camping, recreational and arts programming, The Periwinkle Foundation provides opportunities for these special children and their families to heal emotionally, lead fuller lives and become stronger survivors. With the generous help of our friends and supporters in the community, The Periwinkle Foundation changes lives for life.
