Garner's mother, Esaw Snipes, told The New York Times previously that Garner, who gave birth four months ago, had learned during the pregnancy that she had heart problems.

During the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Garner endorsed the bid of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to become the Democratic presidential candidate and slammed the Clinton campaign when leaked emails revealed they were discussing how to use her father's death as political capital.

Hearts are heavy today as reports poured in that activist and eldest daughter of slain Staten Island man Eric Garner, Erica Garner, has died. We didn't deserve her.

She had been in a coma after suffering a massive heart attack last week that left her with severe brain damage. News of her hospitalization and Saturday passing prompted an outpouring of support from high profile progressive activists and politicians, including Vermont Sen.

Her father's final words, "I can't breathe", were captured on cellphone video and became a rallying cry for protesters against police brutality. "It really really was", a tweet posted to her account said.
