Boss Sells Restaurant to Donate Money to Employee

How far would your boss go to help you out in a health crisis? For one 19-year-old woman in Texas, the medical bills are piling up and she can't even afford to find out if her brain tumor is cancerous.
How far would your boss go to help you out in a health crisis? For one 19-year-old woman in Texas, the medical bills are piling up and she can't even afford to find out if her brain tumor is cancerous.

Now her employer is going way beyond the extra mile to help her out.

Along highway 105 in Montgomery-- you'll find the Kaiserhof restaurant and an employee named Brittany

Brittany says, "I have my good days and my bad, get headaches."

Brittany Mathis doesn't look sick -- doesn't even sound it -- but she is and everyone at the authentic German restaurant knows.

"It's like a waiting game."

Brittany's mom, Barbara, she works here too, and is worried. Her daughter has a brain tumor.

Barbara says, "The rash on my leg started and went to hospital and found out it was my blood clotting so they wanted to keep me and do CAT scans and MRI's and the next day they came in and told me I had a tumor."

The 19-year old doesn't have insurance, hasn't signed up yet for affordable healthcare, the medical bills are piling up, and treatment has stopped.

Michael De Beyer, the owner says, "I just can't be standing by and doing nothing I have to try something because it's not right."

So De Beyer, their boss, is selling his family's 6-thousand square foot restaurant to donate money to Brittany

"Here's a family they really work hard they have a lot of stuff against them in the past and they are not holding their hand open they didn't even ask anybody for help."

The Mathis family, they've been through a lot. In 2000, Barbara's husband, john, had a tumor no one knew about. When john's tumor ruptured, it was unexpected and fatal. So, the idea that someone could give so much is a bit overwhelming for the Mathis family.

Brittany says, "Never thought anybody would do that and he did and it just makes me feel really good."

Feeling good, something Brittany could experience again if the restaurant sells in time.

De Beyer said he has owned the restaurant for 17 years and believes it's worth as much as two million dollars.

He also wants to sell the business to spend more time with his wife and two children.
