Lisa continued: ‘It was like they just ripped our hearts out.

‘And even though we had prepared ourselves for the worst for weeks, months and even years and thought we were prepared.

‘Nothing… absolutely nothing prepares you for that moment or those words.’

‘Our beautiful girl couldn’t beat the enemy… but she fought and fought.. every single day. We miss her so much,’ she concluded.

Last month, the former competitive swimmer opened up about her intense grief in an emotional post shared to Instagram.

‘Somehow, this change I find myself in now is testing my very being. Some days I don’t even feel like me anymore, or being me anymore,’ she wrote.

Lisa, who is also the mother to son Jett and daughter Morgan, said she has refused to seek professional guidance and prefers to grieve in her own way.

‘People are telling me to seek out help.. with psychologists, doctors, people who have been through what I am facing at the moment … but I know in my heart, that I actually have the answers myself,’ she explained.

Lisa said while she acknowledges ‘birth, death and change’, she’s finding the ‘changes’ in her life since Jaimi Lee’s death the hardest to navigate and overcome. 

Lisa announced Jaimi’s death in an emotional social media post on September 15.

‘Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,’ she wrote at the time.

‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is unbearable but we cherish every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured and so loved first child.’ 

It was later reported that Jaimi had battled alcoholism and an eating disorder before her death at a Sunshine Coast hospital.
