It is with great sympathy to report that 27-year-old, mother of 2, Erica Garner, has died. The political activist and daughter of choke-hold victim, Eric Garner, died after suffering a massive heart attack that resulted in her being treated with a medically induced coma.
Dear friend and journalist, Shaun King took to his Twitter to announce her passing.
Our dear sister Erica Garner has just passed away.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) December 30, 2017
When you were her friend, you her friend through all adversity. She was a fierce protector of her friends and family. A truth teller. As genuine and authentic of a soul you’ll ever encounter.
We’re less because of this loss.
A statement was released from Garner's Twitter urging folks not to "donate money to anything" that has not been shared by them directly.
PLEASE DO NOT DONATE MONEY TO ANYTHING THAT THIS ACCOUNT HAS NOT SHARED. THAT EFFORT WILL BE FOR HER KIDS AND ONLY HER KIDS.— officialERICA GARNER (@es_snipes) December 30, 2017
Erica suffered her first heart attack back in August shortly after giving birth to her son. Doctors stated that her pregnancy put a strain on her heart that was later found to be enlarged.
The Steve Harvey Nation sends our condolences to Erica Garner's family and loved ones.
Rest In Power Erica.
