The couple had been waiting for two years and the old man was tired of sitting around waiting for the right donor to come along, so he did the best he could to find her one.

Walking with a sandwich board that reads: ‘Need kidney 4 wife’. The old man manages to walk for miles with the hopes of finding the right person who would willingly donate kidneys. Over the weekend though, his prayers were answered as the couple received a call that there is an available donor.

After the news was featured on Fox 13, the couple received a lot of calls from people who would like to help the couple. Winters said: “Between 7-800, it filled my phone up. I’m sitting here with this full phone.”

Good News Network featured the story of Winters, he recalled the moment his wife received encouraging words from a caller that said: “We have a kidney for you, get down here.” He said that he was so overwhelmed at that moment that he didn’t know what to think.

Surprisingly, the donor did not come from those who offered to help, but instead came from a patient who passed away in the hospital. He is more than happy to receive the good news and the hopes of adding more years to their relationship.

Although his wife already has a donor, Winters’ mission is not yet done. He still walks the streets of Utah encouraging others to donate a kidney to people who are in need.
