6 Simple Steps to Granting a Dream

1.
Request
We request a letter with the child’s name, age, address, telephone number, parent’s name and the child’s diagnosis. We forward a medical authorization to the parents for signature and doctor information.
2.
Determine
To determine the child’s medical eligibility, Dream Come True, after receiving a medical authorization from the parents, contacts the child’s medical team. The child’s medical team completes our medical determination questionnaire which is reviewed by Dream Come True to establish if the illness is a medical diagnosis that is life threatening or has seriously altered their lifestyle. Doctors verification determines a child’s eligibility.
3.
Eligible
Once a child is deemed medically eligible, two of our dream team volunteers meet with the family in the child’s home. At this meeting the children use their imagination to create the experience of a lifetime. Their dream is born!
4.
Report
The dream team prepares a report to present to our board of directors about the child and their dream for approval.
5.
Approval
After board approval our team of volunteers work on fulfilling the dream.
