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 15,300 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.

Latest Status Update

  • We have so many amazing photos from Kinsley's wish that it's hard to pick just one, but we had to share this one of her looking like true royalty! “The entire family getting together for Kinsley was amazing," shared Kinsley's mom. "The best part for me was seeing her run around and have fun with kids again!"
