FOUNTAIN GREEN, Utah - A little girl with a life-threatening illness is asking for a lifetime of Christmas cards this year.

"Cerebral atrophy is just a symptom of what is wrong, but she is undiagnosed," Tami Fausett, Addie's mother, said.

"She kind of stopped growing when she was 3," she added.

Since then, her mother says the bubbly and energetic little girl, who now weighs just 23 pounds, continues to struggle.

Doctors say 6-year-old Addie only has one year left to live, so she is beginning to hang all of the Christmas cards from her friends and family on her door.

"She doesn't get to play with kids, so we thought if everyone would send her a card, we could tell all her friends it would make her Christmas a little bit better," Tami said.

Addie's older sisters, Shayley and Audree, hang up every Christmas card they receive,

As word has spread about her wish, family, friends and strangers are sending card after card.

"We're hoping to get a lot so we can cover all the walls with them for Addie," Tami said.

If you would like to send Addie a card, you can mail it to:
