After three years, Parra-Adame is still on the kidney transplant waiting list, KCBD reported, so her husband Roberto Adame, took an unusual path to finding the organ she needs by covering the rear window of their vehicle with a sign that reads: "HERO NEEDED MY WIFE NEEDS A KIDNEY 806-319-3674."

Their grandson works at a printing shop and printed not only the sign, but cards and shirts too, KCBD reported.

So far the family has received more than 500 calls, but have yet to had a match, KCBD reported.
