Child with severe burns only wants cards for Christmas

title

By Lisa Braxton

A little girl in New York state with burns over 75 percent of her body has only one wish for Christmas this year–enough cards to fill her aunt’s card tree.

According to WGN-TV, two years ago, Safyre Terry’s father and three younger siblings were killed in a fire caused by arson. She was found next to her father, who used his body to shield her from the flames.

In addition to suffering from severe burns, Safyre lost her right hand three months after the fire, and also lost her left foot. She has had dozens of surgeries and her next one is scheduled for January 5.

Safrye’s paternal aunt, Liz Dodler, who has sole custody of her, said that she bought a tree to hang Christmas cards on this year, and Safyre instantly got excited and said she couldn’t wait to fill it up. “Honey, that’s probably not gonna happen,” Dodler said she responded. “We maybe get 10 cards a year, and the card tree holds 100.”

So Dodler decided to do something. She posted a request for cards on Facebook. Social media is responding. Cards have started coming in.

Christmas cards for Safyre can be sent to P.O. Box 6126 Schenectady, NY 12306, USA
