In all his years running Tommy's Restaurant in Ohio, owner Tommy Fello never got an order quite like this one: a mocha milkshake for a customer nearly 400 miles away.
The request came last month from Emily Pomeranz, a Cleveland Heights native, who was dying from her second battle with pancreatic cancer, Fox 8 reports. When her friend Sam Klein visited her at a hospice in Arlington, Va., he asked her if there was anything she needed.
"A Cleveland Indians hat," she said, he writes on Facebook. That one was easy. The second request, not so much. "What I would do right now for a Tommy's mocha milkshake," she mused, Klein tells Fox 8. He emailed Tommy's, and a few days later got a call from Fello, who was on board to make this happen. "It touched my heart," Fello says. But completing the "Milkshake Mission" (aka "Mission Impossible") wasn't a simple feat.
