Wayne Winters and his wife had been waiting for two years to find a kidney donor that could save her from her stage five kidney failure, and Winters became tired of waiting for a miracle.
Instead, he took to the streets of Farr West, Utah last month with a sandwich board sign reading: “Need Kidney 4 Wife”.
Every day, he would walk for miles down the road in hopes that the right person would see his sign and be inspired to donate the life-saving organ.
After KSTU broadcasted his story, however, the 74-year-old husband was inundated with calls and kidney offers – as many as 800 calls per day.
Then, the Winters got the call that they had been praying for.
“‘We have a kidney for you, get down here,’” Winters told the news station. “I was just so overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to think.”
