The 22-year-old woman’s family is grieving her passing after she committed herself last month while battling Lyme illness.

According to her father’s online post last week, Amelie Champagne spent years trying to figure out what was wrong before receiving a positive diagnosis for the disease in June.

Alain Champagne, a manager in Montreal, Quebec, posted on LinkedIn that “over time and despite the recent therapies, the condition had grown much beyond the numerous physical symptoms and was now significantly hurting her brain.”

“Lyme essentially highjacked her…She was so courageous throughout this ordeal … she decided to free herself from the unbearable pain. We are confident she is now in peace.”

Before her suicide, Amelie’s loved ones witnessed how challenging life had become for her in dealing with the “evolving Lyme disease symptoms,” Champagne wrote.

“Despite the struggles of the past few years she persevered through university, kept working at a respite center for handicapped kids, was starting to volunteer at a homeless shelter near our place,” he noted.

“The resilience and continued optimism she displayed while dealing with the ever increasing symptoms was and remains my main source of inspiration.”
