Kirsten Marten was on her way to Mexico for a family vacation when she realized she had forgotten her youngest son's medication.

"We left for Mexico without our youngest sons critical medication," she said.

So, she posted a "Hail Mary" on a local moms Facebook group at 5 a.m. asking if anyone may happen to be flying out today or the next day and could bring his medicine with them.

Marina Miller, who lives in Victoria's West Shore saw the post and immediately jumped into action.

She found and purchased the required medication, and arranged to have it waiting at the hotel when Marten's family arrived in Mexico to start their vacation.

"Marina Miller - someone I've never met, let alone spoken to, reached out immediately and in a matter of minutes not only had me sorted out but had the medicine arrive at our hotel when we arrived and paid for it all herself!" Marten wrote in a Facebook post.

"Her act of kindness left this exhausted and overwhelmed mom welling and filled with love up and set our trip off on the right foot. We are eternally grateful to her and I have to say - I'm fangirling a bit over her now and can't wait to meet her in person."

Marten plans to repay the kindness she was shown by Miller to another mom.
