Elyse's state of injuries are extensive. Elyse has been moved to Townsville to be closer to our regions specialist neurological team and will need her families support long term.

Elyse is a well known local model and sweetheart of FNQ, who only a week ago proudly represented Queensland in Melbourne at the 'The Miss World Australia National Finals', Elyse is studying grade 12 and is a beloved part of the Dimbulah Farming Community and will undoubtedly need support from our loving friends and the wider community.

We would like your help to lift the 'financial burden' from Elyse's family for travel, accommodation and ongoing bills to continue running their lime farm, so they can focus on supporting their little girl as she fights for her life during this unfathomably difficult time. Elyse's family have received your kind messages and heartfelt thoughts, at this stage they are focused on Elyse and are unable to respond, but are humbled and astonished at the offers of kind words and generosity.

Thank you to the Miller family's local community who have helped pack and run their farm in their absence, your kindness is greatly appreciated. Elyse can not receive flowers in hospital and so please do not send gifts and flowers. The family kindly appreciate your respect for privacy in relation to Elyse's condition.

Please give what you can afford to help ease the financial burden on this beautiful family, please share this page to show your support. Thank you kindly xx

We are absolutely devastated to announce ‘Elyse Miller-Kennedy’ passed away yesterday afternoon at Townsville Hospital Intensive Care Unit, surrounded by beloved family and friends after losing her week long battle to live after a tragic head on collision on Wednesday 3rd August 2016.
Elyse will always be a shining light in the hearts of Far North Queensland, known for her caring nature, love of her family and incredible natural inner and outer beauty.
The support the community has shown has been absolutely resounding, thousands of messages and well wishes not only from locals, but globally. There have been friends, neighbours and strangers helping where ever they can, businesses have been fundraising and the prayers of the faithful are echoing from afar.
We would like to thank everyone who has donated to the ‘my cause – Prayers for Elyse’ charity page, set up to rally support around Elyses family through this difficult time which has exceeded 4.6K shares and so far has raised in excess of $45,000. https://www.mycause.com.au/page/132876/prayers-for-elyse our communities way of supporting this beautiful family for their unimaginable journey ahead. Elyses family is absolutely humbled and by the publics generosity and have no words to explain their astonishment and gratitude. Also thanks to all medical staff, police and rescue services involved.
We would like everyone to remember Elyses inner beauty, the warmth she showed to all, her humbleness during her journey throughout her larger than life experiences and of course the generous sweet soul and friend she was to so many.
