Making A Mark

International exhibit of art by children touched by cancer and blood disorders

The Periwinkle Foundation Presents Texas Children’s Cancer Center’s Making A Mark is an exhibit of art and creative writing by children touched by cancer and blood disorders featuring Régine Gaud & Gérard Visser.

Now in its 18th year, Making A Mark is part of Texas Children’s Cancer Center Arts in Medicine program – a program that provides enjoyable, educational and meaningful artistic opportunities for patients and their families. Making A Mark is open to children from all across the globe.

Making A Mark was adopted by The Periwinkle Foundation, an organization committed to developing and providing programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults, and families who are challenged by cancer and other life threatening illnesses at Texas Children’s Hospital, in 2001.

 For 25 years, The Periwinkle Foundation has partnered with Texas Children’s Cancer Center to provide unique, family-centered programs. In addition to Making A Mark, The Periwinkle Foundation also provides camps and recreational activities, including Camp Periwinkle, a summer camp designed specifically for the special needs of cancer patients.
