The owner of Kaiserhof Restaurant and Wunderbar in Montgomery, Texas has put his family’s restaurant up for sale in order to help save one of his employees. Nineteen-year-old Brittany Mathis, a beloved waitress at the eatery, has a brain tumor. Since she does not have health insurance, and hasn’t signed up for the Affordable Care Act, the young woman can’t even figure out whether her tumor is malignant or benign.
In 2000, when Brittany was 6 years old, her father was diagnosed with a brain tumor which ultimately proved fatal. The restaurant’s owner Michael De Beyer thinks the restaurant could fetch as much as $2 million.
“I just can’t be standing by and doing nothing,” said Kaiserhof owner Michael De Beyer. “I have to try something because it’s not right.”
So De Beyer has decided to sell his family’s 6,000 square foot restaurant and donate money to Mathis.
“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,” said De Beyer.
