The pretty pink flower that has the power to heal!


About the Author

I am currently a sophomore at The University of Wisconsin La Crosse, where I am studying Biomedical Science, with a minor in Spanish. I grew up in the small rural community of Kiel, located on the northeastern side of Wisconsin. Born and raised on a dairy farm, I aspire to become a large animal veterinarian. I have a passion for working with animals and spending time outdoors. My classmates and I were all assigned  to research and create a website on a "medicinal organism." I chose the Rosy Periwinkle because I was interested in the reputation of the plant and its ability to be used as an anti-cancer drug. I hope that you have gained a better understanding and appreciation towards the Madagascar Periwinkle!
