Holly Gormley passed away from Aplastic Anaemia, a condition that occurs when the body stops producing enough new blood cells.
The condition leaves people fatigued and more prone to infections and uncontrolled bleeding.
The 11-year-old’s school, St Catherine’s Primary and Nursery, paid its own heartfelt tribute to Molly on social media.
It said: “We remember our precious Year 7 Pupil, Holly.
“May her gentle soul rest in peace.
“We ask everyone to keep Holly, her mummy (Mrs Claire Gormley), her daddy, her brother, her family and the whole school family in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly sad and difficult time. 🙏
“Our precious angel.”
In February, Claire Gormley said her daughter had been leading a normal life until she was hit by spells of fatigue and unexplained bruises on her body.
She was first taken to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry for treatment before being transferred to the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children
“To be honest we are all still very much in shock, our whole world just came crashing down around us in a matter of hours.
“She’s just an average 11-year-old girl, all in to her hair and make up. She is just a fun loving girl and still and all of a sudden we were hit by this.Tags:
