Christmas Wish Comes True for Young Burn Victim Who Lost Entire Family in Fire
A courageous young girl who lives not too far from Binghamton has just one wish for Christmas, and with the help of kind people all around the world, her Christmas wish is coming true.
Eight-year-old Sa’fyre Terry of Schenectady lost her entire family in a house fire more than two years ago. Miraculously, Sa'fyre survived, but she suffered burns over 75% of her body and eventually lost her right hand and her left foot. This sweet girl has been through hell on earth and if anyone has a right to ask for the most elaborate things for Christmas, it would be Sa'fyre. But - she doesn't want elaborate things. She simply wants enough Christmas cards to fill up her Christmas tree card stand.
Sa'fyre's aunt shared her wish on Facebook, and the magic of social media took it from there. Sa'fyre immediately began receiving cards from all over the world. People have also been sending this precious one gifts and money.
A YouCaring page has also been set up and so far more than $280,000 has been raised. If you would like to send a Christmas card to Sa'fyre, you can send it to: P.O. Box 6126, Schenectady, NY 12306.
