On Easter Sunday, Chick-fil-A bent its rules to help a very sick boy, thanks to a nurse at McLane Children’s hospital in Temple, Texas.
But they didn’t do it for just any customer. It was for Danny Agee, who is battling a brain tumor.
Ten-year-old Danny Agee was rushed to the hospital on Easter, unresponsive and unable to breathe on his own, his father Joey Agee told CNN. It turned out that he had a brain tumor causing a dangerous buildup of fluid.
Doctors immediately placed a drain that stabilized the pressure on Danny’s brain. But he was not out of danger. A neurosurgical team prepared to operate the next morning.
When nurses removed Danny’s breathing tube so he could take his first sips of water since his ordeal began, he also asked for food. He had not been able to eat anything for nearly the entire day. When his doctor said he could eat anything he wanted, Danny asked for nuggets from Chick-fil-A.
This happened after doctors at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Center in Temple told him he could have whatever he wanted ahead of his surgery Monday morning.
When the boy asked for Chick-fil-A nuggets, the hospital contacted the franchise owners and asked for help.
They agreed to make a special delivery, and the Chick-fil-A cow surprised Agee Sunday afternoon with his exact order.
What’s even better is that doctors said Monday’s operation was a success.
