Struggling Mom Confesses Heartbreaking Secret To ‘Co-Worker,’ But Has No Idea He’s The CEO In Disguise.

When CBS introduced us to their hit series ‘Undercover Boss,’ the world couldn’t get enough. For the show, the CEO of a company would assume the role of a lowly employee for one reason: to learn about and bond with the people that work for them. Employees have been fired before, but the real reason to watch is because sometimes people like the amazing person featured below come along.

John Fuller, CEO of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, went undercover at one of his San Diego shops to see what life was like working for ‘the man.’ Right off the bat, he met a wonderful woman named Deanna who had been with the company for more than 15 years.


Deanna has a hard life. Having just lost her father to cancer and battling liver cancer herself, Deanna’s only thought is for the future of her children. She broke down in tears while telling Fuller about her troubles, but never failed to let joy and compassion ring brighter than her pain.

Fuller was so impressed by Deanna and her resilient way of life, he decided to give her an incredible gift, that will only keep giving hope for a brighter future for her children.

Check out Fuller’s amazing act of kindness in the video below.
