A friend of Alyssa Power, who died Friday in a collision in St. John's, says she's heartbroken to know that Power's infant daughter now has to grow up without a mom — just like Power did herself.

Power, 19, died when the Honda Accord she was in collided with an SUV at the intersection of Canada Drive and Hamlyn Road.

The driver of the Honda remained in serious condition Monday while two male youths in the SUV were treated with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Cycle of tragedy

Power, the mother of a one-month-old girl, lost her own mom when she was a little girl, according to her friend Ashley Hollahan.

"It just breaks my heart knowing that [her daughter] has to go through the same thing that Alyssa had," Hollahan said.

As far as Hollahan knows, the baby is currently staying with Power's aunt, who actually raised Power when her mom passed.

Hollahan doesn't remember the details around how Power's mom died, but said it was always difficult for her, and that it was hard for friends who still had their mothers to relate and give her comfort.

"It just took a really hard toll on Alyssa and as she got older, seeing all of us with our moms, she would sit down and cry sometimes," she said.

"We didn't understand death back then, we didn't understand why we couldn't see them anymore."

Hollahan described Power as a down to earth person who, despite her own personal issues, would drop everything to help her friends in time of need.

She said it seemed like since the birth of her daughter in March, Power appeared to have a new lease on life — which makes it extremely difficult for her friends and family to accept her sudden passing.

Fundraising campaign

A GoFundMe campaign, started by Hollahan, is helping the family out with funeral expenses and other costs.

The goal for the drive is $1,000, and as of Monday morning had surpassed $500.

"[It's to] make sure they're not stressing. [We] don't want family worrying about how to pay for things," she said.

"I guess whoever has the child now will receive the baby's money and stuff like that. But it's not easy. I have a four year old and I know it's not easy."
