“He had played three days and they didn’t win the money, and he was just a wreck,” said Steve.
Finally, this man (who was also the captain of his team) won the 20 grand, and he immediately collapsed to his knees, sobbing uncontrollably.
Even more curious about the man’s condition at this point, Steve remarked on how emotional he was about winning the money.
That’s when the team captain looked him square in the eye and said, “Steve, I’m terminally ill. I’ve got three months to live, and because of my illness, I can’t get insurance. I need this money for my family.”
Taken aback by the man’s determination and perseverance to win a game show in his dying days for the good of his family, Steve decided to give him another $25,000 out of his own pocket.
Harvey’s selfless act of kindness for this ailing man is a beautiful reminder of Galatians 6:2:
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
Our prayers are with this sweet father and his family. Watch Steve tell the gripping story in the video below:
