ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) – A 76-year-old Anderson man is walking the streets wearing a sign begging for help to get his wife a kidney transplant.

Larry Swilling says he didn't know what else to do.

The sandwich board reads "Need Kidney 4 Wife."

Swilling says he and Jimmie Sue have been married 56 years. He says his wife developed kidney problems after their first child. Swilling says it's gotten progressively worse.

Medical workers have told the couple they will need several hundred thousand dollars to help pay for the transplant.

Swilling say he's still working nine hours a day because of the couple's financial situation. He walks the streets on his days off from Consolidated Southern Industries, wearing the sign with his phone number, 864-314-0212.

He believes God will help him find a donor.
