SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – A postmaster in the tiny rural town of Fountain Green, Utah, is being swamped with cards.

They are not for the holidays but for are wishing tiny Addie Fausett happy holidays on what is expected to be her final Christmas.

She has an undiagnosed illness that has halted her growth since she was 3 and is now causing cerebral atrophy. Doctors say she has less than one year to live.

Her grandmother started a social media push last month asking people to send Addie Christmas cards to make sure she knows she’s loved. She lives in Fountain Green, Utah, about 100 miles south of Salt Lake City.

The cards have come from Germany, Australia and Saudi Arabia. One judge sent a signed and stamped court order for Addie to have a Merry Christmas.

They’re coming at a clip of 1,200 a day.

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

Addie and Her Family

P.O. Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632
