Brain cancer survivor, Bethdany Thompson, 11, committed suicide after being ‘bullied over her uneven grin’ caused by a tumor

A young girl got off a school bus last Wednesday and shot herself with a gun on the back porch of her Cable, Ohio, home.

Bethany Thompson’s mother Wendy Feucht believes the 11-year-old, who earlier survived brain cancer, had been bullied, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Feucht said in an interview with the news outlet: ‘I think that she was just done. She didn’t feel like anybody could do anything to help her.

‘People need to know that even the littlest things can break someone.’

Feucht recalled: ‘She told her she loved her and that she was her best friend forever, but that she was going to kill herself when she got home.’

The mother also said that her daughter’s friend informed her several peers had frequently teased them.

It’s unclear who the gun belongs to, the Dispatch reported.
