kidneyANDERSON, SC – Marriage is more than just having a heart. Sometimes it’s about getting a kidney. Check out this South Carolina couple.

Jimmie Sue Swilling was born with only one kidney which recently began to fail. So her husband, Larry, vowed to find her one. He took to the streets armed with a sign, even spreading the message on his car.

Now, it seems Larry’s labor of love paid off.

The Swilling’s say the Medical University of South Carolina has found a donor. Not much is known about the donor, but the Swillings believe it’s someone who saw their story.

Now all that’s needed are a few more tests. If that goes well, the surgery could happen next week.

While the Swilling’s hold out for good news, one thing’s for sure: Larry’s signs are a true sign of love.
