Maria Gibson from Eastbourne is organizing a very emotional fundraiser after a local teenager sadly lost her battle with mental health.
So far, £2,350 of the £6,000 has been raised. Can you help today.
Here’s Maria: “I have set up this go fund me page for some friends of mine.
“They have just lost their lovely daughter who has struggled most of her life with autistic traits and mental health problems.
“They have been talking about getting a beautiful head stone and memorial plot for her.
“Yasmin, also known as Axel, was only 18 and sadly couldn’t cope any longer.
“Yasmin unfortunately lost her way in life because of things she couldn’t cope with and this is when Axel took over a stronger version of herself.
“Yasmin sadly lost her battle with her mental health in April and thought the only way out of all the pain was to take her own life.
“Her family are devastated and heartbroken and want to have a memorial resting place for her so they can visit and spend time quietly remembering the beautiful child she was.
“They would like to purchase a cremation plot and a beautiful headstone for Yasmin
“Yasmin suffered for many years with her mental health and her own identity – she was a very quiet, lovely but vulnerable girl whostruggled so much with everything.
“Towards the end of last year, Yasmin was diagnosed with mixed personality disorder which added to her decline in mental health.
“We are also looking to hold a raffle and a silent auction to raise funds.”
