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

  • Alexis-Hope from Cheyenne, Wyoming had her wish to go to Disney World granted in 2016. She has a very special message for the volunteers involved in the process! During National Volunteer Week, we are celebrating the individuals that make wishes happen. Without the help of our volunteers, we wouldn't be able to grant wishes to all of the eligible children around the state.
