A British grandmother was left totally surprised last month after finding that she won the lottery for almost $1.3 million just 10 minutes after discovering she was free of breast cancer.
55- year-old Lynne Price had just begun digesting her positive scan results when her husband, David, came home from work to say that they’d won 1 million pounds from EuroMillions’ Millionaire Maker.
While becoming a millionaire is excellent, David, 53, told hearing his wife’s diagnosis was even better.
“I reached home to say Lynne but she had some big news of her own. The letter telling she had the all-clear is worth more than a million to me,” he told.
The couple, who have 3 kids, ages 32, 26 and 24, and one 11-year-old grandson, have played the lotto for years to no avail.
“We’ve been doing the lottery since it began — you put your money on but you don’t really expect to win a million,” replied David.
Meanwhile, in 2015, Lynne was diagnosed with cancer and underwent treatment over the past 4 years.
The happy couple decided to celebrate their big win and 33rd anniversary next month while travelling out of the country. Their goal is to eventually make it to China as well.
In May, David is plotting to climb Mount Everest throughout a 3-week expedition, which he was capable to pay off in total.
