Michigan pizza shop delivers to cancer patient 225 miles away

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. - A Michigan pizza shop usually doesn’t deliver, but an employee made a big exception to bring a pair of pizzas to a cancer patient and his wife 225 miles (362 kilometers) away in Indiana.

Julie and Rich Morgan grew fond of Steve’s Pizza when they lived in Battle Creek, Michigan, more than two decades ago. They’d planned a trip to the restaurant for Julie Morgan’s birthday in September, but Rich Morgan ended up in the hospital in Indianapolis and later in hospice care.

Julie Morgan’s father called Steve’s Pizza on Saturday and spoke with 18-year-old Dalton Shaffer, who offered to make the delivery.

Shaffer tells the Battle Creek Enquirer he “just wanted to make them happy.” The delivery drew attention after Julie Morgan posted on Facebook about it .
