FARR WEST, Utah —

A 74-year-old Utah man whose wife needs a kidney transplant is spreading his message by wearing a sandwich board, KSTU reported.

Earlier this week, Wayne Winters began walking busy streets in Farr West, Utah, wearing a sign that reads “Need Kidney 4 Wife,” along with his telephone number. Winters’ wife, Deanne Winters, has stage 5 kidney failure.

“I don’t walk real fast,” Wayne Winters told KSTU. “I’m trying to get a kidney for my wife.

“She’s on dialysis and she doesn’t like it. It’s horrible.”

Wayne Winters said he got the idea of using a sandwich board after seeing a story online about another man who received national attention by using one.

“I thought, ‘I can do this,’” he told KSTU.

Winters said the first day he walked, a man stopped and said he would check to see if he was a match. But until there is a confirmed match, he will continue to pound the streets.

“After I get a kidney I will have my wife back the way she was, normal, helping people, loving people,” Winters told KSTU. “She likes to serve other people.”
