Countdown layout in $tu

Not sure if this is already solved or i just don't know how, but I'd like to be able to put in a format $tu or $df that would countdown to a anniversary date.

E.G: 05/05/17. I would like a live countdown until the date, including hours and minutes. I've tried everything but can only get it to say "3 months from now". I'd like it to say "3 months, 27 days, xxx amount of hours, xxx amount of mins until event". If this had already been solved I apologize.
