Two years ago, Safyre Terry survived an arson attack that killed her father and three siblings. In addition to the emotional trauma she suffered, this young survivor is still facing multiple surgeries to deal with the effects of her burns. Seventy five percent of her body was burned and she had to have an arm and a leg amputated.
She has had over 50 surgeries. On January 5th, she will have yet another. This one will be to deal with scar tissue which causes her mouth to tighten up.
Safyre now lives with her aunt, Liz Dodler. When her aunt bought a Christmas card tree, the young girl got excited with anticipation of filling it with cards. But, her aunt said they usually only get about 10 cards a year, so she posted a request on Facebook for people to send her cards.
Cards are beginning to arrive and Safyre is is thrilled. You can join in by spreading some cheer to this survivor by also sending her a card. One simple and easy act of kindness really would mean the world to this young girl. The address is:
P.O. Box 6126
Schenectady, NY 12306, USA
Will you please share this story to help Safyre get the Christmas cards she hopes for?
