Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware & Susquehanna Valley
Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Any child over 2½ or under age 18 with a critical illness may be eligible for a wish. The child's treating physician makes the final determination of whether the child is medically eligible to receive a wish and whether the child is able to participate in the wish. After talking with the child, the Make-A-Wish team sets out to create a magical wish experience for the child that will last a lifetime. Every effort is made to include the immediate family in the child's wish. The wish experience often touches dozens, and sometimes hundreds of people who either help coordinate or are directly involved in the wish.
