TEMPLE, Texas (WFLA) – Chick-fil-A is known for being closed on Sundays. But their hard-and-fast rule was broken on Easter Sunday to brighten a Texas boy’s day after he was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor.
Danny Agee, 10, was rushed to Baylor Scott and White McLane Children’s Center after a brain tumor caused him to become unresponsive and unable to breathe on his own, his father Joey Agee told CNN.
Surgeons removed fluid from his brain and prepared to operate the next morning.
But before the surgery, Danny got hungry.
“We asked what he could have, and the doctor said, ‘Whatever he wants,'” his father recalled.
Danny asked for Chick-fil-A, which is closed on Sunday. But Danny’s nurse, Jenny Pearce “pulled some strings,” and got the restaurant’s manager and a Chick-fil-A cow to bring nuggets straight to his hospital bed
“Now, I don’t fully know what connection she has because I was out of the room, but God is so good to us that somehow through Jenny and the amazing leadership at North 31st St Chick-fil-A, my son Danny got nuggets delivered not only on a Sunday but on Easter Sunday,” Joey Agee wrote on Facebook.
