New York Daily News is reporting that doctors have declared Erica Garner brain dead and have notified family to say their final goodbyes.

'She's not gone, she's brain dead, ' her mother Esaw Snipes told the New York Daily News.

It also pushed Erica Garner into activism.

Erica has four siblings: Shardineé, Emerald, Eric Jr. and Emery.

The father-of-six's death sparked widespread protests. In just one month, the fundraising page raised $44,567. The elder Garner had been put into a chokehold by an officer with the New York Police Department and could be heard pleading, "I can't breathe!" Emerald writes that Eric "stepped up and took over" the role of being a father to Shardinee after marrying her mother.

Earlier in the day, Garner's Twitter feed thanked supporters. In 2016, she campaigned on behalf of Sen. She was always at rallies, she was always calling me - 'Reverend, we'll do this. Twitter has been alight with reactions to the news, including hopeful affirmations that Garner will make it through. Garner died in July, 2014 when police subdued him with a chokehold under suspicion of selling loose cigarettes.

After giving birth in August, Garner suffered her first heart attack.

Eric, Erica's father, suffered from the same condition.

The city medical examiner ruled Garner's death a homicide, with asthma and obesity as contributing factors.

According to NBC, this is not Erica's first experience with heart attacks. Doctor's informed the family that the pregnancy caused her intense stress due to her already enlarged heart.

Garner has a two-year-old daughter, Legacy, with a woman named Jewel Miller.

Eric Garner's daughter Erica Garner takes part in candlelight vigil at the site where her father died in July past year after being put in a chokehold, during a Martin Luther King Day service in the Staten Island borough of New York January 19, 2015. Snipes declined to name the hospital where her daughter was being treated.

At the center of the issue is how much money Legacy is legally entitled to. Her lawyer said she believed grief and emotional trauma was at least partially to blame. An out-of-court settlement in which the city agreed to pay the Garner family $5.9 million was announced in 2015.
