A restaurant owner near Houston, Texas is going to extraordinary lengths to help an employee facing a serious health crisis.

Brittany Mathis, 19, and her mother both work at Kaiserhof Restaurant in Montgomery, Texas. Brittany has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, but she doesn't have health insurance and hasn't signed up yet for affordable healthcare. The medical bills are piling up and treatment has stopped.

"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."

De Beyer is selling the restaurant and donating 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," said De Beyer.

In 2000, Brittany's dad John Mathis, had a brain tumor that no one knew about. When it ruptured, it was unexpected and fatal.

"I really think it’s an amazing blessing and can't thank him enough and his family," Mathis said. "Never thought that anybody would do that and he did and it makes me feel really good."

De Beyer said he has owned the restaurant for 17 years and believes it's worth as much as $2 million.
