CNN: The mother of an 11-year-old boy who hanged himself after allegedly being bullied at a Georgia school says her daughter also has been a victim of taunting.

Masika Bermudez, who Friday will ask the White House for help in a campaign to end school bullying, told CNN her daughter, 12, was recently harassed by a boy who kept referring to her dead brother.

The boy was disciplined but still taunted the girl before he was suspended and his mother withdrew him from a middle school, she said.

Since then, the boy's mom has failed to meet with her, Bermudez said. "I guess she doesn't care."

The mother says she wrote a letter to the president about bullying and will hold a news conference Friday to ask for help.
