Do you know someone whose child is having Open Heart Surgery? Would they like a visit from our Nationally trained volunteers? Or would you like a Bravery Bag delivered to them? Please contact us to make those arrangements. We can deliver a Bravery Bag on the day of surgery or anytime during the hospital stay.
Wishes Are The Best Medicine
For a sick child, sometimes the slightest diversion can go a very long way. The Make-A-Wish Fondation® has been in the business of amazing distractions- fulfilling wonderful, thrilling wishes- for more than 26 years. It is our hope that every child who qualifies for a wish has the oppornituity to be a part of this kind of adventure.
Our biggest challenge is finding children who are eligible for a wish. Any child between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18, who has a life- threatening medical condition, may be refered to our organization. Life-threatening conditions that generally qualify include, but are not limited to, types of cancer, cardiomyopathy and other heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, and transplants.
The child’s physician makes the determanation if the childs condition medically qualifies them for a wish. There are no waiting lists, no income limits, no hurdles. Just an encredible experience for a deserving child when he/she needs it the most. reffering a child takes only minutes, but the memories of a wish last a lifetime. If you know a child that may qualify, please
