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.
The purpose of Make-A-Wish is to grant the wish of each child between the ages of 2½ and 18 who has a life-threatening medical condition, i.e., a progressive, degenerative or malignant medical condition that has placed 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. Please note that there may be medical conditions not described on these sheets that can also qualify as a life-threatening condition and can be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Health care professionals, both medical and psychosocial, can refer a child using the NEXT button below, which will take you to our national wish referral form.
