Terminally Ill Illinois Girl Has A Christmas Wish You Can Help Make Come True
Last week, we learned about Sa'fyre, a little girl from New York who lost her family in an arson fire, is severely burned herself, and had one simple Christmas wish: for people to send her enough cards to cover her tree. Today, we hear about a different girl much closer to home.
19 year old Whitney Fritz lives in Byron, Illinois, just outside Rockford. She is suffering from a rare and deadly disease, and has but one wish this holiday. She too is simply looking for "lots of cards" this Christmas. Again, in the spirit of the season, it's one very small thing you can do to make this girl's season brighter.
Calls on the facebook post have gone even further, asking if anyone knows Rachel Platten to get her there, as Whitney apparently listens to the song many times a day for encouragement. If you can help with that request, it'd simply be amazing. However, minimally, consider sharing this story and sending Whitney a Christmas card of holiday joy and encouragement, spreading that holiday warmth and magic. We celebrate Whitney's positive attitude and wish her and her family the best this holiday season.
