How to keep your little girl healthy and happy when you have an extra necklace
LIZ DOWNTOWN, Mich.
— A woman in her late 30s who is a mother of three with a baby on the way to birth had to take her own life.
The story started with a Facebook post by Liz Downtown on May 31, which read, “I am a mom of 3.
I am currently on maternity leave.
I am going to take my own life tonight.
Please help me with anything you can.
This is the most difficult time in my life, my whole life.”
The post has since been shared more than 2,000 times and shared over 100 times.
Liz had been on maternity pay.
But she needed to pay her rent and bills, so she took out a loan from her father, a banker.
She then borrowed $20,000 from the bank, which she put toward the jewelry.
In the weeks before her suicide, Liz posted about her experience on social media.
On April 14, Liz told her mother she was planning to commit suicide.
Her family and friends took her to the hospital, where she was treated for a chest infection.
“She was on ventilators,” said her sister, Angela Downton.
“She had a very hard time with it, but she was getting better.
She was doing great.”
But after two days, doctors discovered a “serious infection,” Angela said.
Then, the doctor discovered that the infection was the result of a virus she had contracted from her son.
Angela told ABC News that she and her husband went to see Liz at her house.
When they arrived, doctors were still unsure what was going on.
There was no way to tell if Liz had been exposed to the virus.
That’s when they decided to call 911.
They called the emergency room, and while they waited, they learned that Liz had taken her own own life after doctors found out.
While she was in intensive care, doctors used a needle to puncture her lung.
It took two days for her body to return to normal.
Before her death, she had a baby girl, Zahara, and two other children, Tariq and Rachael.
Since Liz’s death, her family has started a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for Zahara and to cover her funeral costs.
A memorial service for Liz will be held on Saturday, May 30 at 4:00 p.m. at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Flint.
