A little girl named Kathleen Edward from MIchigan has passed away after losing a battle with Huntington’s Disease. This little girl made headlines in 2010, in one of the most sickening cyberbullying stories we’ve seen to date.

This reportedly included things like a picture of Kathleen placed on a set of crossbones and a picture of her grandmother in the Grim Reaper’s arms. The grandmother’s neighbor Jennifer Petkov had been responsible for posting these things on Facebook.

FOX 2 in Detroit reports:

Petkov admitted to FOX 2′s Ron Savage that she posted the photos…

Petkov’s cyberbullying drew scrutiny and well-wishes for Kathleen poured in from around the world. Thousands attended a rally in October 2010 to help raise money for the Edward family. Volunteers even treated her to a shopping spree at a local toy store.

The station ran this report about in 2010:

Woman Who Taunted Dying Girl Now Offers Apology: MyFoxDETROIT.com

As a father, I find the whole thing incredibly repulsive, but then again, I also find it repulsive as a human being.

The Huntington’s Disease Society of American Michigan Chapter is accepting donations, as is the Michigan Memorial Funeral Home. Donations can be made in Robert Edwards’ (Kathleen’s father’s) name.

    Has the population really stooped down this low? Making fun and bullying sick people, let alone young girls?
    It sickens me to even think about this. RIP Kat.

      “Has the population really stooped down this low?”

      No. Read. “The population” had nothing to do with it.

    God bless this little girl. And I hope Jennifer has her place picked in hell, if God doesn’t forgive her for what she did. To hurt one of God’s little ones you might as well have a mill stone tied around your neck

    Jennifer is clearly a sick, demented person for what she did with this child’s picture. I’m sorry it is absolutely repulsive to make jokes like she did about a child who is slowly dying.

    May Kathleen go to the loving arms of the Lord, to be free of pain and suffering. Best wishes to the family during their grieving.

    Confucius said: Don’t do what you don’t want to be done upon you.

    To the Edwards and the Petkovs, with all my symphathy and condolenses, all that were done, could not be undone. Don’t do it again. I felt deeply sorry for both families concerned, for your loss and grievance. Kathleen, you have taught the world to behave in a more humanity way. RIP.
