13 Year-Old Dies of Suicide After Bullying From Classmates, Which Reportedly Continued Even While She Was Hospitalized
Family and friends are mourning the loss of their 13-year-old Rosalie Avila after her parents made the heart-wrenching decision to take her off life support Monday night. Rosalie, who was a victim of bullying, was hospitalized Sunday night after a suicide attempt, CBS Los Angeles reports.
According to her father Freddie, Rosalie left a suicide note that read, "'Sorry, Mom and Dad. I love you. Sorry, Mom, you're gonna find me like this."
The grieving parents also shared with the local news outlet that Rosalie would write down in a journal many of the mean comments kids would say to her. "'They told me I was ugly today,'" Freddie said he read in the journal. "'They were making fun of me today about my teeth.'"
The Avilas said even after Rosalie was placed on life support, the bullying did not stop. Charlene told CBS she received a photoshopped image of her daughter that read, "Hey mom. Next time don't tuck me in this (referencing a bed), Tuck me in THIS (pointing to a grave)."
Prior to Rosalie's passing, her great aunt Daisy Martinez shared on that her great niece was going to donate organs to help save other children's lives.
"Dear great niece Rosalie, tomorrow you will save 8 lives, although your loss will be great beautiful baby girl, we pray your daddy, mommy, sisters, and brothers will find some comfort knowing lives were saved because of you!!," Martinez wrote.
Rosalie's mother has started a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for medical expenses and to honor her daughter. In four days, the account surpassed its ,000 goal more than three times over as of Tuesday afternoon.
"My daughter is a victim of bullying," Charlene wrote on the page. "She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a great artist, very lovable & loving. Her smile would light up the whole room with her laughter. "
"She was daddy's girl and mommy's princess," she added. "She wanted to be a lawyer and wanted to help the world to be a better place.
