Ronnie Foster from Pink Hill, North Carolina was on his way to his last round of chemo treatment for colon cancer when he made a stop and bought a $1 lottery ticket.
After winning $5 he traded in his winnings for two more tickets, one which would make him $200,000 richer. Foster, a retired Department of Transportation worker, said that part of his lottery win will go to cover his medical bills not covered by insurance and the rest will be saved for the future.
“I was already happy because it was my last day of chemo. Winning this made it my lucky day!”, Foster told WCVB.
