Referring a Child to the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Michael Quiel has served as the president of Legend Advisory Corporation in Fountain Hills, Arizona, since 1999. Outside of his work with the real estate consultancy and investment company, Michael Quiel engages in charitable activities with organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Today the Foundation grants such wishes every 37 minutes. Candidate children and their families approach the Foundation in a number of ways, including personal referrals. Individuals can begin the process by visiting http://www.wish.org and locating their local Make-A-Wish chapter. Referrals can be made by a number of parties, including family members, parents, and legal guardians, medical professionals familiar with a child’s case, or the children themselves.

Before an individual case can be reviewed by the Foundation, the child in question must meet the basic eligibility requirements. Any child between the ages of two and a half and 18 living with a life-threatening medical condition may be considered for a wish. After the child has qualified and a referral inquiry form has been submitted, nominating parties and foundation representatives can collaborate on a wish for the child that is both achievable and fitting.
