Man in need of transplant builds 7-foot kidney out of snow to raise awareness

Jim Gorbunow, 43, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a child, which led to a kidney and pancreas transplant 15 years ago. The goal of his snow model is to raise awareness not just for himself, but for others as well, he said.
