Getting Your Wish Granted!
If your medical illness or life-altering circumstance have impeded your wedding plans, Wish Upon a Wedding may be able to help. Please review the criteria for having your Wedding Wish granted below. If your circumstances align with our guidelines and mission, we welcome you to submit your application.
BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL WISH RECIPIENTS
One person in the couple must be diagnosed with a terminal illness with a prognosis of:
Classic Wish: fewer than 5 years OR serious life-altering circumstances (example: a severely wounded veteran)
Urgent Wish: fewer than 6 months
Both partners must be over the age of 18
Both partners must be U.S. Citizens
Wish application must be filled out by the couple or a full time caretaker/hospice worker. Family or friends cannot apply on behalf of the couple because the couple needs to understand the agreements that are made as part of receiving a Wish.
