A teenage girl with an aggressive brain cancer is asking for strangers to send her Christmas cards.

19-year old Destiny Coselman was diagnosed with IV Glioblastoma in September 2016.

Her mother says the first doctor they saw told them Destiny would have less than two years to live. 

She now is a patient at the Duke Cancer Center in North Carolina. 

Her family drives there every other month hoping something will work.

“Everything has changed," says Destiny's mother Jodi Coselman. "Life is at a standstill; we can't move forward or do anything because we need to get rid of this first. It was her senior year in high school, she was supposed to graduate, she was supposed to get her driver's license and a job, all the stuff that you're doing when you're 18.” 

Destiny’s mother says she could use a little holiday cheer and thinks cards would be the perfect way to put a smile on her face. 

"Just to hear from people that don't even know her. My faith in humanity has been restored since this has happened,” Jodi says. 

You can send a card to Destiny at: 10341 Alan's Drive, Fowlerville , MI 48836 

A GoFundMe was created to help with medical and traveling expenses.
