Chick-Fil-A makes Sunday food delivery to boy with brain tumor

TEMPLE, Texas (WPVI) -- A Texas Chick-Fil-A lifted the chain's decades-old policy to remain closed on Sundays to make one chicken nuggets fan's day.

Joey Agee shared video and photos of his son Danny receiving Chick-Fil-A this past Sunday, prior to undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor. The special delivery was arranged by a nurse, Jenny Pearce, and featured the store's manager and the Chick-Fil-A cow mascot.

The store is normally closed on Sundays due to its company's values to observe a day of rest. The chain, which has a location at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, home of Super Bowl 53, famously remained closed during this year's big game.

Danny underwent surgery to remove a benign tumor on April 22. His father updated his condition via Facebook, saying Danny was "looking good".
