Sick husband opens wife’s baseball cards, then sees hidden message and breaks down.

Steve Winfree is still young, but has been battling a kidney disease for the past 14 years.

Because of his disease, the travails of dialysis and his organ failure, Steve hasn’t been able to work full time. He’s been waiting for a kidney transplant, which are incredibly expensive.

But Steve isn’t battling alone — he has his wife Heather at his side. The two deal with the ups and downs of medical illness, but also finds diversions in their shared love of baseball cards.

Heather used their love of cards to share an important piece of information with Steve one day. She gave him a new pack, and as Steve went over each one, he realized something was going on when she brought his attention to a special card in the back of the deck.

The card featured a picture of Steve himself, as well as a moving description: “Steve has had a lot on his plate. With his health issues he has been striking out a lot. He was not sure how he was going to end up. His wife Heather thinks he’s a great catch, so she’s decided to go to bat for him. Heather will be pitching a new kidney to him. They are sure to hit it out of the ballpark together!”

Watch the touching video reveal of Heather’s loving donation, beginning at 1:03, and see Steve’s equally moving reaction — it’s true love in action…
