Badly burned little girl who lost family in fire wants lots of Christmas cards

FILE: Saf'yre Terry (CNN)

A little girl whose father and three siblings died in an arson has a simple holiday wish: She wants enough holiday cards to fill up her Christmas tree.

Sa'fyre Terry is the sole survivor of the blaze that killed her family two years ago. Sa'fyre, now 8, has endured many surgeries for burns over 75 percent of her body.

Her custodial aunt, Liz Dolder, said Tuesday that Sa'fyre was "over the moon" when the first card arrived. But Dolder said the family was unlikely to receive enough cards to fill the card tree.

Dolder posted a photo of Sa'fyre on Facebook and told of her wish. She's been deluged with responses.



Dolder says "it's just magical. She's so excited."

The address for cards is P.O. Box 6126, Schenectady, NY, 12306.
