This month we are spotlighting The Periwinkle Foundation, one of our newer Chamber members and a local pediatric cancer non-profit. Periwinkle is a Community of Healing through camps, arts and survivor programs, which are provided at no cost to children and families affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses who are cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital.

Each year more than 14,000 children, teens and families are touched by Periwinkle programs, including Camp Periwinkle, Camp YOLO, Periwinkle Family Camp, Periwinkle Day Camp, Camp Days at Texas Children’s Hospital, 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, and a collaborative community of over 20,000 supporters, The Periwinkle Foundation provides opportunities for these special children and their families to heal emotionally, lead fuller lives and become stronger survivors.
