Some may remember Larry Swilling of Starr's story - he's walked all over the Upstate and even around Charlotte with a simple message: "Need a Kidney 4 Wife."
FOX Carolina spoke to him back in September when he first began his search for a kidney for his wife, who was born with just one kidney that is now failing. Now nearly five months later, there's no good news yet. In fact, Swilling's wife is now on kidney dialysis, still awaiting a good match.
Swilling said at least 600 people have called, hoping to be able to help his wife Jimmie Sue. But so far, no one has been cleared as a perfect match.
Jimmie Sue's blood type is O positive, making her search more difficult. While O positive is the most common blood type, those with it can only receive donations from others with type O blood, according to the American Red Cross.
"We're ready," said Swilling. "Just waiting for that one phone call. I hope it comes soon."
