"Finally, he won the $20,000 and he just fell on his knees, and he wouldn't stop crying," Steve Harvey shared. "I was talking to him after the show and I said, ‘Hey man, you were pretty emotional about the $20,000.'"

That's when Steve finds out some shocking news. This gentleman is so emotional because the Family Feud contestant is terminally ill.

"He says, ‘Steve, I'm terminally ill. I've got 3 months to live and because of my illness, I can't get insurance. I need this money for my family.'"

The prize money that the man won on Family Feud would be used so his family would not be burdened with his bills. This touched Steve so much that he gave this brave man an additional $25,000 of his own money. How generous!
