The MAGIC Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization created to provide support services for the families of children afflicted with a wide variety of chronic and/or critical disorders, syndromes and diseases that affect a child's growth.
The MAGIC Foundation was incorporated in the state of Illinois and received 501(C)3 non-profit status October 29, 1989. Since its inception the Foundation has grown to include support services for adults who were also impacted by these disorders.
The MAGIC Foundation's mission is to reduce the emotional and physical trauma caused by growth disorders, resulting in healthier, happier children and consequently, adults. Our Motto: Children have a short time to grow and a lifetime to live with the results! Together we are MAGIC!

When contacting us, we are not medical professionals. We are parents of affected children. We will try to match you with the parent whose child most closely resembles you/your questions. We can help you understand what we have learned from our child's experience or from conversations with physicians and other families. Always consult a medical professional for specific medical information.
"The MAGIC foundation was my first source of information after diagnosis. Years later, when we needed help with other issues, MAGIC went above and beyond to help me find resources and answers to my questions. Whenever I am helping a new family navigate the waters of growth disorders, MAGIC is the place I send them. There is no other organization that is so well put together and resourceful when it comes to growth disorders. Thank you MAGIC for all that you have done for my family."
