These Kids Ask for Cards Instead Of Toys For Christmas

While other kids ask for expensive toys and top of the line gadgets, these kids who are suffering from different health conditions, only dream of getting Christmas cards this year.

Addie Fausett, 6 years old, will be spending her last Christmas this year due to an atrophy to her brain. She was a healthy and cheerful child, but she stopped growing at age 3. The doctor said that Addie is dying and this could be her last Christmas. Her family asked people from around the world to send her a card to cheer her up and make her feel really loved.

If you’d like to send her one, you can send it here: Addie Fausett P.O. Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632
