Make-A-Wish volunteers visit the child to uncover what the child’s most cherished wish is.
|Every child’s imagination is unique, so we design each journey to create an extraordinary experience that stays true to the child’s cherished wish.||This can be as powerful as the wish itself. It builds the excitement and it empowers the child by actively involving them in the creation of their wish.|
Fulfilling a wish beyond a child’s wildest imagination.
|The positive impact of a wish lasts long after the wish is granted and spreads to everyone involved in the Wish Journey.|
Qualifying for a Wish
Make-A-Wish accepts referrals for potential wish children from:
|Parents/Guardians of Child||Medical Professionals||The Children Themselves|
A child's treating physician will determine if the child is medically eligible for a wish, based on the medical criteria established by Make-A-Wish.
Children who are at least 3 years of age, but have not yet reached their 18th birthday, may be referred to Make-A-Wish International. Make-A-Wish International takes into consideration all factors as they relate to the wish and the wish child, and then plans the wish accordingly.
Each Make-A-Wish affiliate follows specific policies and guidelines for granting a child’s wish. Some wishes have restrictions based on various factors, including the child’s medical condition in relation to the wish request.
