Who is Eligible?

A child with a life-threatening medical condition who has reached the age of 2½ and is younger than 18 at the time of referral is potentially eligible for a wish.

After a child is referred, Make-A-Wish® will work with the treating physician to determine the child's eligibility for a wish, i.e suffering from a progressive, degenerative or malignant condition currently placing the child's life in jeopardy. 

Our vision is to grant one wish to every eligible child. While more than 14,000 wishes were granted across the United States last year alone, this reached only half of the eligible children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
