The family of a 6-year-old Baker City girl who was severely burned in an accident needs your help brightening up her hospital stay.

According to reports from the Baker City Herald, Moira Reeves' untied dress belt caught fire as she stood in front of a wood stove at her home two weeks ago. Flames quickly spread across her body because of the nylon dress she was wearing.

Moira was hospitalized at Legacy Oregon Burn Center where she underwent two surgeries. About 30 percent of her body suffered second and third-degree burns.

She has since been moved to Randall Children’s Hospital where she's recovering for the next couple of months.

She's unable to color and draw quite yet, so her family came up with a fun way to help her learn and brighten up her day.

They've gotten her a large map of the United States, and want people from all over the country to send her a letter with a fun fact about their state.

If you'd like to send her a letter, you can send it to:

PO Box 24
Baker City, Ore.
