A cancer survivor and day care employee was shocked and reduced to tears when her boss demanded that she come outside to show her something.
Veronica Solis, a cook at Kids’ College Learning Center in Edinburg, Texas, loves her job and has never missed a day of work, even when she was battling cancer.
Recently, Solis was late to work, however, because her ride to work fell through several times. Devastated and worried about her position at the day care center, she told her boss to find somebody to replace her.
Solis’ boss, Alex Rios, didn’t take her suggestion, however. When she arrived at work several days later, he told her that they would be filming a commercial that day.
Rios brought the camera crew into the kitchen while Solis was busy cooking meals for the children. He talked to her on camera and she explained why she loves her job.
Rios then told her she has to come outside as soon as possible. When she walked outside, he surprised her with her own car. Solis was shocked and immediately broke down in tears.
Rios told her that he wanted to do something special for her because she had been such a faithful and hardworking employee. When he realized that she was in need of a way to get around, he jumped at the opportunity to help.
