Programs are for critically ill children under the age of 18 and their immediate family members only. Patients must be diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, be receiving active treatment, and be frequently hospitalized.
The child's primary physician and social worker should complete applications. When more than one diagnosis is involved, each attending physician must complete a medical statement.
Eligibility will be determined by the Foundation after physician's assessment. Applications will be reviewed and approved by the Program Director. Applications for critically ill children will be updated and reviewed every two years. Siblings may participate in programs until age 21. Patients will remain eligible for one year after last active treatment (Routine follow-ups excluded). Families are encouraged to participate in programs through the Better Together Program for one year after the loss of the child participating in programs. Patients must live in MD, PA, DE, NJ, VA, WV or DC to participate in Casey Cares Programs.
