The Periwinkle Foundation, named after a plant used to make the chemotherapy agent vincristine, was founded in 1983 by Dr. Paul Gerson to provide children at Texas Children’s Hospital with the opportunity to “just feel normal” for one week at Camp Periwinkle. Since inception, Periwinkle’s signature program — Camp Periwinkle — has allowed over 5, 000 campers to experience a week of pure joy, freedom and emotional healing.
Today, Periwinkle camps, arts and survivor programs touch more than 14,000 children, teens and families annually. The Periwinkle Foundation’s programs have proven to exceed initial expectations and are recognized by physicians as a critical part of treatment and recovery for children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
