S. Carolina man wears sandwich board to find new kidney for wife
SOUTH CAROLINA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A man in South Carolina is drawing national attention with his sandwich board sign with the words "Need Kidney 4 Wife."
Larry Swilling found he wasn't a match to his wife of 57 years, Jimmie Sue, so he was determined to find one for her.
Over the course of one year, over 2,000 phone calls came in.
About 125 of those who didn't match still chose to donate to others in need.
On Wednesday, Jimmie Sue will undergo surgery thanks to her husband's efforts.
