A Montgomery Texas Restaurant Owner Is Selling His Business to Help an Employee with a Brain Tumor
Last month, a 19-year-old in Montgomery, Texas named Brittany Mathis started having headaches and blurred vision. So she went to the hospital, where they found a brain tumor the size of a ping pong ball.
Now, Brittany doesn't have insurance, and hasn't signed up for Obamacare yet. So she hasn't even been able to have tests done to see if it's cancerous. Which is where a guy named Michael De Beyer comes in.
Michael is the owner of Kaiserhof Restaurant, where Brittany works. And he's decided to sell the restaurant, so he can help pay for Brittany's treatment.
Michael has owned the business for 17 years, and says it's worth about $2 million. But he's planning to auction it off at a starting price of $1 million. Then anything beyond that will go to Brittany, whose father died from a brain tumor in 2000.
Michael says he's determined to make sure the same thing doesn't happen to Brittany. "I'm not able to just sit by and let it happen. I couldn't live with myself."
