Who Is Eligible?

Children afflicted with Juvenile Arthritis who has reached the  age of 4 and is under the  age of 21 at the time of referral,  is potentially eligible for a wish. After  a child is referred to the Foundation,  the Foundation will contact the child's  treating physician to determine whether the  child is medically eligible for the requested wish. In addition, a child cannot have  received a wish from another wish-granting organization.

Parent,  Guardian, Child

Out of respect for  the privacy of the children and families  we serve, children who may be eligible  to receive a wish can be referred  by one of three sources: Medical professionals  treating the child – such as doctors,  nurses, social workers or child-life specialists. A parent or legal guardian of the  potential wish child and the potential  wish child.
