Tributes are coming in for Co. Tyrone schoolgirl Holly Gormley after she sadly passed away from a rare blood condition.
11-year-old Holly Gormley from Strabane was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in February following fatigue and unexplained bruising on her body.
The condition sees the bone marrow in your body being unable to produce enough blood cells.
Following her diagnosis, Holly spent months in the hospital and needed constant blood transfusions before her family was told that she would need a stem cell transplant.
With neither her brother nor her parents being a match, they tragically were unable to find a donor.
St Catherine’s PS Strabane, the school Holly attended, posted a tribute on Saturday confirming the devastating news that she had passed away.
“We remember our precious Year 7 Pupil, Holly. May her gentle soul rest in peace,” they said in a Facebook post.
They described the schoolgirl as “our precious angel.”
