Chick fil-A Breaks Rules for Boy with Brain Tumor, Makes Surprise Hospital Delivery on a Sunday
On Easter, no less!
Everybody knows that Chick fil-A stores are closed on Sundays. But when a very sick young boy needed his nugget fix last weekend, a Chick fil-A in Temple, Texas, didn’t hesitate to throw out the rule book.
Danny Agee had been in the hospital since early Saturday morning, when a grand mal seizure lead to the discovery of a three-centimeter tumor in his brain. On Easter Sunday, the night before his scheduled brain surgery, Danny got word from his doctor that he could eat “whatever he wanted” for dinner. Chick fil-A was an easy choice for the youngster, but there was a problem. It was a Sunday.
Danny’s dad Joey recalled in a heartfelt Facebook post how he and his wife Mandy had to remind their son that it was Sunday, which meant Chick fil-A would be impossible.
His nurse, Jenny Pearce, overheard this and sprang into action. She was able to get in touch with someone at the Chick fil-A on North 31st Street and made the unbelievable happen: a Chick-fil-A on a Sunday.
But that’s not all. One of the store’s managers made a personal delivery to the hospital, bringing not only nuggets, but also Doodle, the store’s bovine mascot. Joey shared footage of the emotional visit on Facebook (below). “My son Danny got Nuggets delivered not only on a Sunday, but on Easter Sunday by a manager and the Cow,” the amazed dad wrote.

"For us, this is not a story about Danny or Chick-fil-A. This is a story about how when you let him, God will work miracles through you and for you," Joey told Fox News. "This is the essence of our story and I think Chick-fil-A would agree. Thanks for taking the time and God Bless. By the way, Danny’s surgery went amazing even though they didn’t remove the tumor and he should be going home very soon."
