Terminally Ill Man Wins $20,000 On Family Feud – When He Sobs Uncontrollably, Steve Knows He Needs More – Video

From his supercharged faith talks to taking the bullet for the Miss Universe mishap, Steve Harvey has continued to inspire America as a class act comedian, TV personality and advocate of Christian values. The 60-year-old entertainer may be a big success now, but Steve will never allow the life of the rich and famous to rob him of his humble beginnings. As the son of a coal miner, he knows what it means to work hard and what it means to not have enough.

That’s why his heart just broke when he met one particular gentleman on an episode of Family argued. In between tapings of his talk show, Steve told the story of one of the most memorable moments of his television career. During the episode, the host recalled this contestant “sweating profusely” to the degree that they actually had to change his shirt. In his typical lighthearted manner, Steve tried to joke around with the guy, but deep down, he could tell something was really wrong.

“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. “He just fell on his knees, and he wouldn’t stop crying,” Steve recalled. 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 leaving days for the good of his family, Steve decided to give him another $25,000 out of his own pocket.
