A 74-year-old man put the wedding vow "in sickness and in health" to the test when he walked several miles every day to find an organ donor for his wife.
According to the American Transplant Foundation, more than 100,000 people in the U.S. are currently on the waiting list for an organ that will potentially save their life. The majority of these people are in need of a kidney transplant.
The Foundation stated on their website that every ten minutes another name is added to this waiting list.
“My wife has stage 5 kidney failure,” Winters told FOX 13. “She’s on dialysis and she doesn’t like it, it’s horrible.”
After two years with no luck, the Utah man was so desperate to add more years to his wife's life that he walked with a sign that said: "Need Kidney 4 Wife." He also provided his phone number and her blood type.
