Wish Organizations
Each wish-granting organization has different requirements for children. Some will not grant wishes to children under age 3 or over age 18, but some will. Some will not allow wishes that require travel out of the continental USA. Some will provide second wishes to relapse patients. It is well worth researching wish organizations and making a few calls to find out what your options are.
