A 74-year-old man walked miles a day to add time to his wife's life. Wayne Winters was desperate to find the love of his life a kidney, and his plea caught the attention of people around the world. Now his wife has a new kidney. “I was just so overwhelmed. I didn't know what to think,” Winters said.
Once the story aired on TV it went viral. Hundreds stepped up to help him and his wife. Now three weeks later, he's no longer walking along sidewalks but through the hallways of a hospital. On Sunday his wife Deanne got the call they've waited two years for. There was a kidney for her!!
A kidney donor passed away bringing new life to his wife. Now with a new kidney the couple can add more time and adventures to their 26 years of marriage.
“If she can have a good five years that would be awesome, we can have our life back,” Winters said.
Winter's mission is far from over.
“I will spend more of my days walking with my sign to see how many I can get,” Winters said.
“Think about it we could start a kidney revolution, and that' would be so great,” Wayne said.
