It’s not uncommon to scroll through social media and come across a variety of gender reveal videos. Balloons stuffed with confetti, boxes stuffed with balloons and cakes stuffed with frosting are the most popular reveal trends.
Among all off these exciting baby reveals, it’s rare that we find a “transplant reveal.”
But that’s just what Steve Winfree found himself wrapped up in when his wife surprised him with a pack of Topps baseball cards over the weekend.
“You’re saving my life”: Watch the incredibly creative way this woman surprised her husband with the emotional news that she’s his match for a kidney transplant. http://abcn.ws/2sXXT7m

Steve, a die-hard baseball fan, is in desperate need of a kidney transplant. So his wife, Heather, stepped up to the plate!
In a viral video, Steve is seen opening the pack of baseball cards, and flipping through when he comes to HIS OWN baseball card.
Handmade by heather, the front has a photo of Steve, while the back reads:
“Steve’s had a lot on his plate. With his health issues, he’s been striking out a lot.
He was not sure how he was going to wind up. His wife, Heather, thinks he is a great catch, so she’s decided to go to bat for him.”
Through tears, Steve reads the final line on the card which says:
“Now Steve will be a rookie recipient of a transplant.”
Cue ALL. THE. TEARS.
Heather had found out earlier in the day that she was a match for her husband. Because of that, Steve could be getting her kidney by the end of this month!!
Steve looked up at his wife through uncontrollable sobs of joy and said with a beaming smile: “You’re saving my life.”
Is someone chopping onions?!
What an incredible moment captured on video. Praying for a successful surgery and speedy recovery for the Winfrees as they take on this kidney transplant journey together!
