A photo of Dolly as a child in an Akubra hat when she was the face of the iconic brand has gone viral since her parents, Tick and Kate Everett, released it as part of a social media campaign to raise awareness of the impact of cyberbullying.

"This is all we are capable of at the moment and ask for your respect to give us time to grieve", the family said in a statement to the Australian Broadcasting Corp. Her family said her death came after she was victimized by cyberbullies. "It is up to us to stand up when we see any kind of bullying behaviour".

"If we can help other precious lives from being lost and the suffering of so many, then Doll's life will not be wasted", he said.
