Are you happy now, Mrs Petkov? Girl, 9, with Huntington's dies (Shortened Title)
Daily Mail UK ^ | 1/12/2012 | Mail Online

Posted on 01/13/2012 3:52:40 PM PST by Dallas59



A nine-year-old girl whose tragic battle with Huntington's disease captured the nation’s sympathy after she was taunted about her suffering on Facebook by a neighbour died last night.

Kathleen Edward, of Wyandotte, Michigan, is expected to be buried at a memorial garden in nearby town Livonia next to her late mother Laura Edward, 24, who also died of the brain disorder, in 2009.

The girl hit the headlines 15 months ago when Jennifer Petkov, a neighbour of her grandmother Rebecca Rose, posted nasty images on Facebook that made fun of both Kathleen and Mrs Edward.

My sister married into a family with HD. Her FIL, BIL and husband have all died of HD and now her two sons have it.

My heart bleeds for her.

This child dying of HD at such a young age is very unusual.

Prayers to the family, who has been through too much. As for the tormenting bitch who hounded the poor girl to her death, I hope she gets lots of hate mail and run out of town. Maybe her husband will divorce her.

She is one of those people who simply were born without a soul. I believe the politically incorrect word is ‘evil’.

And may the little girl rest in peace and God avenge her torment at the last day.

Of course this was after the “people” on 4chan got word of this and abused the Petkov’s to the point that the husband went onto Fox2 here in Detroit, begging for all of it to stop.

I think the Petkovs are satanists.

There are a bunch of stories about this bitc# being arrested for a number of different things, since then, why isn’t she in jail?
She keeps getting probation and even that is suspended after a time.
She is one sick woman.

Un####ing believable. Whether they’re satanists or not, I hope he’s keeping a hot corner for people who do things like this.

Would that be "because it rubs her ass raw" Petkov?

He is being abused? Not possible. You have to be alive to be abused, and this zombie scum is one of the walking dead. He deserves whatever he got and ten times more.

That’s very sad. Did your sister know about the HD in her husband’s family before her marriage?

Mrs Petkov apologised for what she did but faced charges of assault with a dangerous weapon and reckless driving after allegedly trying to run over another neighbour with her car, reported WKBK.

She's a real peach, that some. Sheesh!

Self centeredness is the root of all evil. It blocks people from having compassion. The bitch of a neighbor was only thinking of herself when she made the comments.

Not exactly. It was identified after they were married. At one time, my sister and her MIL were the only two healthy ones in the family. Then her MIL got a malignant brain tumor and was dead within 4 months. It’s been a terrible thing.

Thank you so much. In addition to the rest of the family tragedies, my sister has also suffered from ill health for years. I personally think stress has been a factor in her ill health.

Over the years, my mom and dad had been faithful fundraisers for HD. They both died and they were honored this year as the Iowa HD family of the year. My mom and dad deserved this honor. Our mom and dad also left some of their estate to HD.

He actually dumped her not long after and got custody of her kids.

The disease tends to appear younger in each generation - there is a repeated genetic sequence and the number of repeats tends to increase.

Very unusual, its a progressive disease that usually doesn't manifest until years later than she was...Usually early adult years....Iwonder if they have the wrong disease.I am not sure but I think the old time name for it was the St Vitus Dance due to the jerking motions...but I could be wrong...I have wondered about it also

Sad that your sister has it in her family. Its especially hard when your children have it..

Is it my imagination that there are more jerks in the world now than 40 or 50 years ago?

Maybe it’s just the effect of the internet age, when people can put their idiotic thoughts out into cyberspace, and it soon is read around the world.

So far, that doesn't seem to be happening in my BIL's family but I do know that that has been the case in some families.

My BIL was in his 30s when symptoms first appeared and that seems to be the case for my nephews.
