A man battling cancer wins $200,000 on his last day of treatment.
Generally we will bring you news or updates on the lives of the rich and famous, however, this feel-good story was such a hit with our team we just had to share it with you.
A man from North Carolina named Ronnie Foster has been battling cancer. On the way to his last appointment he was in such a good mood that he decided to test his odds at a local convenience store. Little did he know, he would be walking out a changed man.
He first purchased a scratch off for $1- winning $5. Ronnie then went on to say:
“At the last second, I decided to buy two tickets instead of one,”
With the $5 he had just won he purchased a second ticket. This spontaneous decision is what landed Foster at the Lottery Headquarters and $200,000 richer.
He is now a colon cancer survivor, with all the tools to build a new life for himself.
Ronnie says he is using the money to pay off his medical bills.
