A student who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, and graduated last year took her life over the weekend, officials said.

Sydney Aiello, 19, a recent graduate from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, committed suicide over the weekend, according to her mother Cara Aiello.

Cara Aiello told CBS Miami that her daughter had struggled with 'survivor's guilt and was recently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.'

Aiello had been close friends with Meadow Pollack, one of the victims of the Feb. 14, 2018, mass shooting at the school that left 14 students and three staff members dead.

Cindy Arenberg Seltzer, the president and CEO of the Children's Services Council of Broward County, told NBC News that "a great deal of trauma services have been made available" to Stoneman Douglas survivors.

A GoFundMe page has been created 'In Loving Memory of Sydney Aiello', which has already raised more than $24,000.
