The purpose of Make-A-Wish is to grant the wish of each child older than 2½ years and under 18 years diagnosed with a condition currently placing the child’s life in jeopardy.
Please review our Referral Guidance Sheets (see right sidebar), which describe the medical conditions that typically qualify a child for a wish. There may be medical conditions not described on these sheets which can be considered on a case-by-case basis to determine if criteria is met for eligibility.
Both medical and psychosocial health care professionals can refer a child using the NEXT button below, which will take you to our national wish referral form.
Thank you to all the health care professionals who refer their patients to Make-A-Wish®. By referring a child, you help us get closer to achieving our vision of granting every eligible child's wish.
