It’s always good hearing about good things happening to good people. Especially if it can give them the lift they need during a bad time in their lives. Thanks to winning $250k on the lottery, a man diagnosed with stage 4 Cancer can now make his dreams come true.
Richard Beare of Charlotte, North Carolina, had just been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer when he won the lottery.
The retired automotive mechanic told lottery officials that his wife asked him to buy a Powerball lottery ticket. While at the Quick Trip convenience store he decided on a whim to also buy four scratch-off tickets.
As he had very little experience with scratch-off tickets he had to ask the store clerk how to play.
“When I saw that I had matching numbers, I asked her, ‘What does it mean if I match the numbers?’ She said it meant I won a prize. I told her, ‘Well, I guess we just won $250,000 then.’ She was in shock and just kept looking back and forth to me and the ticket.”
The lucky scratch-off lotto rookie said he plans to take his wife to Europe with the money.
"My wife has always wanted to go to Italy since that’s where her descendants are from," he said. "Now I can take her.”
When asked how he feels about the win, he said, “This feels great! It’s such a relief.”
