‘This is who Americans are’: Texas restaurant owner to sell restaurant to help pay employee’s medical bills

On radio this morning, Glenn admitted that when he first came across TheBlaze headline “She probably never expected her boss to react like this upon learning of her brain tumor,” he assumed the story would have a bad ending. But he was pleasantly surprised by what he found.

“This is a story on TheBlaze that I think you are going to be amazed by,” Glenn said. “I immediately thought the dirt bag fired her.”

“Yeah, I thought that [too],” Pat added. “Isn’t that sad that we go to the worse case scenario?”

What actually transpired is truly inspiring.

When 19-year-old Brittney Mathis approached her boss to tell him she was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor, she probably never could of guessed he would have reacted like this. Michael De Beyer, the owner of a Texas restaurant, Kaiserhof, is selling his business to help Mathis, who is one of his waitresses, pay for her medical treatment.

As TheBlaze reported, doctors first discovered that Mathis had a brain tumor after she had noticed a rash on her leg. She doesn’t have insurance and reportedly can’t even afford to learn whether her tumor is benign or malignant. De Beyer told KHOU-TV that he felt a moral imperative to help Mathis pay the medical bills piling up around her. He has decided to sell his 6,000-square foot restaurant and donate the money to Mathis.

“Michael De Beyer. This is who Americans are,” Glenn concluded. “This is who Texans are.”

        Why are you playing the Victim Card, dear brother? Stand tall, and fear not. Satan will reward you greatly in the Fires!

        And stop calling me this other name. It makes you look paranoid, brother.

        Is Obama one of Satan’s children? Obama claims to be a Christian. Is he a false Christian? Or are you afraid to answer? LOL

          Obama is a human leader of your nation, put in place by Tetragrammaton. Why does this confuse you so, brother?

            Now you pissed Him off.

            I am not your brother and ZI am not confused you tard. God often places evil men like obama in a nation to punish it. Sometimes to bring it back to him or to judge the evil. Herod was placed on a throne and then became disemboweled. Obama is punishment for America turning from God in my opinion.

          Don’t bother with him. He’s committed the ultimate sin: he’s blasphemed against the Holy Spirit and is completely unrepentant. He will burn in Hell where he belongs. He deserves no more of our attention. Let’s leave it at that. What a pathetic waste of air he is.

        Satan will devour Satans children but not Yahweh’s children.

    This is who Americans are, this is what we have to resort to? He could’ve kept his restaurant, and she could’ve gotten the care she needed, if we had universal healthcare in this country. I can see why Beck got a little teary eyed in that video.

      He had vaporub in his eyes again. He serves Lucifer. The tears are a great gimmick. Really brings in the rubes.

    This is no doubt a good man who was doing what he thought best, but what of the other employees if the new owners decide to change the staff? I had friends that worked at a fairly large restaurant in Seattle that sold out to a chain. The new owners only wanted waitresses so they fired all the male waiters. Perhaps he should have given her what he could and kept the business running for the good of his family and the other employees.

      I have to agree, it is great that he trying to help one of his employees, but what of the other employees. . .there has to be a way for him to help without throwing the other employees out in the cold.

    Those of you who care so much about the restaurant could help him keep it by donating money to have the girl’s bills paid Instead of talking about what others should or shouldn’t do.

    Best for donors to avoid cameras and watch what great prosperous things God can do.

  • jalina susan stutte

    God Bless this man and I hope this young lady gets the medial care she needs. The community should hold dinners, auctions and fund raising for her so this man can keep his business. I would travel to donate to her cause.

      Hopefully so—like Madison, the mistletoe girl, did with the exposure that Glenn gave her–and this, of course, is more life threatening than getting braces. Thanks again Glenn!

    What about Obamacare? After all, that’s what it is for isn’t it? Pre-existing?

      Texas rejected obamacare.

        It doesn’t matter. They still have it. Texas has declined a State run health insurance exchange, so they are getting the federal exchange set up and run by HHS. You can find the health insurance exchange for Texas at http://www.HealthCare.gov

    Need I say more – Texas. I am so blessed to live here and yes we are giving people. We take care of our own. I would like to have an address so I can donate and pass it along to my friends and family. What an unselfish act of love for one another.

  • Glennfriend67

    God Bless you Mr. DeBeyer. Your place in the Kingdom of Heaven is assured. Like Glenn said, THIS is what America is all about.

    I thought americans had health plans………are you saying she would be left dead of cancer if she didnt pay tens of thousands of dollars on hospitals?????? what kind of health system do you have in USA

    How many children will go hungry because this employer rashly (no pun intended) decided to sell his business, before his employees had found other jobs in a very tight labor market? Are they all border crashers?

    Could brain damage be the cause of Obama’s erratic mood swings, triggered by a botched circumcision, performed without a ‘mohel’ on a panicky young Muslim boy.

  • Anonymous

    Everywhere you go, Obamacare is driving independent businesses out of business.

    Inquiring about a restaurant for sale, if you asked “Who is the seller?” and they replied “Michael deBeyer”, wouldn’t you be more than a bit suspicious?

    I’m not even going to comment on the story, but I will comment on the comments. When the revolution comes, and it will, remember these comments when it comes down to holding your breath and squeezing the trigger. Some are destroying the greatest country that God ever blessed on this planet. We are stupid enough to allow it. People often wonder how God can be good if so many will be tossed into the fire. Think about what you would do with someone that hurt your children and see what God feels about this human trash that is hurting His children. Almost any article or short news reel has the usual suspects making ridiculous, evil comments and hiding behind their digital device. It takes about 3 seconds to figure out who they are when you meet them.
    It’s now down to living your life or losing your country to vermin. I choose life and a place for my children.
    If you read Leviticus 18: 22-30 and realize it’s more than just a sin. They are defiling the land and we allow it. God uses whomever to discipline His children. We will cry out to God and repent, or He will vomit us out of the land He gave us.
