Heather Winfree says her husband, Steven, has been fighting kidney disease for 14 years. In a video that's garnered more than 175,000 views on YouTube, she announced to him that she's a match and will donate a kidney to him.

Steven's treatment, he hasn't been able to work for a year and he has to travel to Nashville for treatment three times a week. The couple has started a fundraiser page to help with his care. If you'd like to donate, click here.
