2014 was a tough year for Audra Daniloff, 17. The Saukville, Wisc., teen spent much of it at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin fighting Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, which stimulates the immune system to attack the body.
Her dad, Marc Daniloff, thought she needed a halfway-decent Christmas surprise so he worked out a deal with the local police department last month, captured in a video he posted this week.
The teen was back in the hospital this week.
