In a moving interview, Jaimi’s mother, Lisa Curry, revealed her daughter’s dying wish.
The swimming champion has broken down in tears over Jaimi’s struggle with addiction and anorexia in the Australian Women’s Weekly magazine.
Jaimi died in September 2020, aged 33, from an addiction and eating disorder.
She had wanted to write a book to assist others with the same issues but was never given the chance.
Kenny had battled addiction and an eating disorder for 18 years before passing away in 2020 at the age of 33.
“Jaimi wanted to write a book to help others, but it was too late. We left it too late,” her mum said.
“But I hope that by being honest and knowing that Jaimi wanted to help others, we can help in some way, in some small way.”
Curry is still grieving the tragic loss of her daughter. She continues, however, to have a lot of life ahead of her, with her two children, Morgan and Jett.
In a recent book, called Lisa: 60 Years of Life, Love and Loss, Curry opened up about her life and career.
She discusses the highs and lows of her illustrious swimming career in it, as well as Jaimi’s battle and death.
“People need to understand that if they have an eating disorder or addiction of some sort, it doesn’t kill you straight away,” she told the Women’s Weekly.
“It kills you over time. It slowly kills you.
Curry now tries to find joy in spending time with her kids and grandkids.
