They asked for help, and you responded.

Now, in two short weeks, a local woman will give her husband the ultimate gift of life.

A fundraiser over the weekend for Chris and Mindy Sledge raised $7,000. That money will help defray costs while the couple is hospitalized.

Mindy is giving her husband a kidney, after doctors determined she was a perfect match.

The College Station couple married last January, and Chris became sick a few months later.
