Serious illnesses can strike at any time. Even the youngest among us can become inflicted with cancer or some other life- threatening illness, challenging families in ways that go far beyond the time spend undergoing treatment. One organization that works to help these families is the Periwinkle Foundation and it has a fundraising event coming up this week. Here are the facts:
