Garrett Andrews - October 2014
Jay Windle was diagnosed with brain cancer in August but needs to continue working since his wife's illness has kept her out-of-work for the past year, reports NRToday. Windle's boss, Augie Castro, at Rodeo Steakhouse understands the difficult situation and the restaurant has come together to raise money for him and support him during this time.
“ 'He has an option: He can work to pay his bills and eat — but he’ll be working till the day he dies. But if he doesn’t work, he’s going to die from starvation,' Castro said." In order to help Windle, Castro suggested that all employees donate a portion of their paychecks (some donated an entire day's work), and then the management matched the total. Three of the restaurants are also donating 10% of the days income from last Saturday's business.
Having supportive coworkers and bosses can make all the difference in a survivor's experience of working during or after treatment.
