Her Facebook page is called Safyre Schenectady's Super Survivor.

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

A simple post about Safyre has gone viral. It was asking people to take the time to send Safyre a Christmas card so she could hang it on her card tree. 

Her custodial aunt, Liz Dolder, told the Associated Press Tuesday that Safyre 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 Safyre 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.
