Just a few months ago, Danny Agee from Temple, Texas, was a perfectly healthy little boy. Then he began having excruciating headaches and coughing, which progressed to vomiting.
Over the course of a couple of weeks, the 10-year-old’s condition rapidly deteriorated. Doctors wrote off his symptoms as a bad migraine and sent him home with pain meds. It wasn’t until a full body seizure landed Danny in the ER that his parents, Joey and Mandy, finally got answers.
Unfortunately, Danny had a brain tumor measuring over five centimeters. Its size had caused pressure to build up in his brain, which, as a result, began pressing against his skull . He needed surgery to drain the fluid and relieve the pressure.
The Agee family spent their Easter Sunday in the hospital preparing for Danny’s operation, which had been scheduled for the next day. Danny got to pick his last meal before then, but when he asked for Chick-fil-A, his parents reminded him the restaurant is closed on Sundays.
But Danny’s nurse, Jenny Pearce, was determined to give the little boy the comfort food he wanted. After all, he was facing major surgery. And somehow, she did it! The management at a local establishment arranged for a special chicken nugget delivery… to be made by the Chick-fil-A cow!
When Danny saw the cow walk into his room, he was overcome with emotion. The kid was so happy to be able to enjoy his favorite food. More importantly, though, he was incredibly touched by the sweet gesture. He couldn’t help but cry when he met the restaurant’s mascot.
After everything Danny’s been through in such a short time, he deserves some nuggets. The Chick-fil-A employees are simply amazing for making that happen, especially on a day they should be with their families.
The best part of this story, though, is that Danny made it through his surgery! Not only were doctors able to decrease the tumor, but they also made adjustments to prevent another surgery from happening in the future.
We’re keeping Danny and his family in our thoughts and prayers as they set out on the road to recovery. Here’s hoping emergency room visits will be a thing of the past, and family time and love will fill the future.
Watch as Danny gets a surprise visit from the “Easter cow” in the clip below, and share to spread good, healing vibes for the little boy.
