FANWOOD, NJ – The tragic story of Addie Fausett, a 6-year-old girl from Utah, who is suffering from a degenerative brain disease has touched the heart of Amy Boroff, owner of Be Craftful, who is inviting local residents to stop into the store (on 250 South Ave. in Fanwood) to make Christmas cards at no cost for Addie on Tues., December 16 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Recently, doctors estimated that Addie has less than a year to live due to this rare health condition, so this is expected to be her last Christmas. Her family has asked that anyone who wants to help make this holiday memorable for Addie to send a Christmas card.

Be Craftful, a children’s toy and walk-in crafting boutique, has grown accustomed to giving back to the community and to those in need. Just over the summer, the retailer sent a birthday package that included cards created at Be Craftul to Danny Nickerson, a 5-year-old boy who is suffering from an inoperable brain tumor.

Boroff said that they try to do at least one free craft event each month to help those in need.

“I’ve had such a great response from the community for this event,” explained Boroff. “This is a great opportunity to help a young girl in need and it gives everybody something to feel good about this holiday season.”

If you’d like to send something to Addie and can’t make it to Be Craftful’s event on December 16, you can send any packages to the following address:

Addie Lynn and Sisters

P.O. Box 162

Fountain Green, Utah 84632
