And then there’s Aimee’s mother. Michelle shared her story with Barrscéalta on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on Thursday.

Michelle revealed that when Aimee called her mother in December, she was living with her grandparents in Rann na Feirste.

She claimed that when Aimee sensed an asthma attack coming on, she would have a panic attack, and this time she informed her, “‘Mammy, I need you to calm me down.'”

Michelle added, “That was the last time I spoke to her.”

Aimee later passed out, and medical personnel arrived on the scene, but they were unable to save her life.”

Michelle explained, “They worked on her for a long time.”

“They told me in the hospital that normally they only work on a case like this for twenty minutes, but that they had worked on her for two and a half hours, so I knew they had done everything they possibly could to save her.”

GoFundMe Campaign

And Aimee’s mother, Michelle, said the family is now resolved to honor her legacy by establishing fundraising for two key charities, with almost €21,000 already raised.

She added, “We decided to collect money for two charities, the Asthma Society of Ireland, because people don’t know enough about asthma and how dangerous it can be, and Pieta House in Letterkenny.”

“Aimee spent some time with them, she suffered a lot with her mental health.”

“You would never think it, because she was always so happy go lucky, but they helped her through a really tough time and I’d like to give something back.”

And the bereaved mother expressed her hope that her “kind” daughter would be proud of the job her family is currently carrying out in her honor.

“She’d be very proud of the work we’re doing to help these charities.”
