Cancer Patient en Route to Final Chemo Treatment Wins $200,000 Lottery Jackpot

October 28, 2019

A North Carolina man being treated for colon cancer won a $200,000 lottery jackpot after he bought a winning ticket while on the way to his final round of chemotherapy, UPI reports. Pink Hill resident Ronnie Foster said he stopped by a convenience store before his appointment and purchased a couple of scratch tickets, one of which was the big winner. "I saw all those zeroes and I froze," Foster said. "I didn't believe it until I gave it to the clerk at the counter to scan. When it showed, 'Go to lottery headquarters,' I started shaking. I couldn't believe it." Foster said he'll use part of the money to pay off his medical bills. "I have good insurance," Foster said. "But there is still some cost. This will make it a whole lot easier."
