Safyre Terry receives about 400,000 Christmas Cards
While many people don't send Christmas cards the way they used to, perhaps we forget the good they can do. Meet Safyre, an eight year old who has lost everything and all she asks for is Christmas cards. In 2013, her father, younger sister, and brothers, were murdered in an arson attack. When firefighters found Safyre in what was left of her New York home, she was clutching her father's chest, who saved her life, but couldn't protect her from all of the flames.
As a result, she's undergone over 50 surgeries, including a hand and foot amputation, Safyre, who is being raised by her dad's sister, is still a joyful child, who has remained strong through the devastation.
"Safyre is a typical 8-year-old—she's just wrapped in a different package," her aunt, Liz Dolder says. "She is the bravest, most courageous little girl you will ever meet. She is funny and witty, sweet and caring, and super strong…She is truly amazing. Once you meet her, she is unforgettable."
