The Gold Coast community is rallying around a much-loved young local family, after their life was turned upside down just five days before Christmas.
Around 8.45am on Sunday, three-year-old Luna Capri was hit by a car outside her Ormeau home.
Police said initial investigations suggest little Luna crossed the road in between two parked vehicles and was hit by a Toyota Corolla which was travelling northbound.

She was rushed to the Gold Coast University Hospital, where she remains in ICU fighting for life.
The heart-breaking story has left the tight-knit Gold Coast community in shock, with thousands of people already digging deep to help Luna and her family.
A Go Fund Me page was set up by a close friend just 13 hours ago and has already raised more than $41,000.
“Our beautiful friends, Jess & Timi need our help,” the Go Fund Me page reads.
“They are the type of people who would never ask for anything in life. They are the most loving, caring, positive and giving friends and parents. Timi is an amazing, hands on father and Jess is the most uplifting and positive mother to their children.”
The description of the fundraising page has described Luna as an “absolute warrior”.
“Our princess will fight until the end. She is courageous. She is confident. She is kind and she is brave. She will not give up and neither will we.
“If this situation has taught us anything it’s that money is nothing and time is everything. We never thought this would happen to anyone, let alone someone so close to us.
“We have set this up on their behalf because we want to alleviate any stress they have about money. Timi is such a hard working man who loves to provide for his family. Now we want to provide for them during the time they need to be with Luna, their other children and their family.”

Luna’s mother Jessica Feeney has also taken to social media, asking everyone to keep her baby girl in their prayers.
“Today is a new day, she’s made it through day one of hell,” Ms Feeney wrote.
“Let’s go my baby! Let’s keep praying! We feel the whole world is behind her and she is feeling this energy! She is fighting and not giving up! Let’s get through another day my baby!
“I love you baby and losing you isn’t an option!”
