“I went shopping in the mall and it was really, really sad, really,” said Mary Beth Turelli, a member of the family.
“It was like, I’m going to leave my son and daughter behind.”
But the family was in need of groceries and needed to save up for their trip home.
So they went to Walgreens, where they found a pharmacy that was open and stocked with prescription medications.
“When the pharmacist told me, ‘We’re closed for the weekend, we have no medication for you,’ I was like wow,” Turellis said.
“I’m like, ‘I’ll get that for you.
But they were concerned that the pharmacy wouldn’t reopen for them because it had closed. “
The family was able to get their medications and pay for everything on their own.

My wife was like I can’t do this without my son,” said Turella.
“She was like ‘Well, I’ll do it, but I have to be here.’
They found a new pharmacy and were able a few hours later to buy medication for themselves. “
On their way home, the Tureillis were stopped at a red light, so they were able to drive home without getting a ticket.
“They’re the ones that kept us safe and gave us hope.””
We’re so grateful to all of the people who helped us out,” said Tammy Tureilli.

The Tureilsons, who are originally from Georgia, now live in Georgia, and are expecting their second child.
“We’re really grateful to the people that came and helped us,” Tammy said.
The family plans to take their son, ages 6 and 7, to the hospital for the first time this week.
The family will be using the medication to treat a serious infection, but they plan to continue to use it during the next few weeks to treat other illnesses.
“This is a huge win,” Tammy Turingi said.
