How it works:

Cal’s Angels grants wishes for kids fighting cancer and provides financial assistance up to $1,000. Anyone can refer a child to Cal’s Angels including medical professionals, parents or legal guardians. The referral form below must be filled out by a family member. The more detail you provide on your form, the faster we can process your application. Please include links and any helpful information about your child’s wish. A wish can take up to 6 months to process depending on the request.

Some recent wish requests include: a laptop, backyard vegetable garden, iPad, family weekend getaway, Chicago sporting events, ABT shopping spree, backyard play sets – the list is endless!

Who is Eligible for a Wish or Financial Assistance?

  • A child under the age of 19, who has been diagnosed with cancer or relapsed within the last 12 months.
  • Receiving treatment at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Central Dupage Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, Advocate Children’s Hospital-Oak Lawn, Advocate Children’s Hospital–Park Ridge, Loyola University Medical Center, University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital University of Illinois.
  • For financial assistance, you must submit a bill and Cal’s Angels will pay it directly up to $500. If you decide to combine financial assistance with a wish, both must be completed within 30 days of one another. The wish and financial assistance total may not exceed $1,000.
  • If your child has already received a wish and has since relapsed, they are eligible to apply for another wish or financial assistance within 12 months of the date of relapse.

When will I hear from Cal’s Angels?

After we receive your submission, a Cal’s Angels wish representative will be in touch within 15 business days to discuss your application. Once the wish details have been agreed upon by you and Cal’s Angels, the wish will be mailed to you directly.

*A wish can take up to 6 months to process depending on the request. Please include as much detail as possible on your application.

Our mission is to make the lives better for kids fighting cancer through a wish and financial assistance. We look forward to receiving your application!

Thank you,
