CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Juan Lopez, a husband and father of three, needs a kidney transplant after suffering from numerous health problems. It turns out, his wife Barbara is a perfect match.
    
"She's always been there for me. I've always been there for her," Juan Lopez said. "I took a chance and my wife got check, and she came out to be my match."

"I was willing to donate my kidney to someone in order for my husband to get a kidney, if that's what it took, but it just worked out differently and I was a match," Barbara Lopez said. "We were so excited. We just held each other and cried."

On June 9, a big fundraiser is planned at the Tequila Rose nightclub. There will be live music and chicken plates for $6. All of the money raised from the event will pay for their medical expenses.
