A fighter and an extremely lucky woman have just experienced her second international lottery win in North Carolina. The winner has been battling breast cancer for six years and has won the lottery twice over the past three months. This is her incredible story.
The winner’s name is Gina Short, and her story is nothing short of a miracle. She claimed her $250,000 winnings from the North Carolina Lottery officials last week Wednesday. Her latest lottery win has come just months after her $1 million wins in the Ultimate Millions second-chance draw.
“We’re still in total disbelief,” said Gina about her win. Lottery officials are still going through chemotherapy for her breast cancer. She celebrated her first international lottery victory in February this year. She was in such shock the first time she won that she fell to the floor and held her head in her arms when she discovered her new fortune.
Gina said she will never forget the happy moment she was given her cheque and officials threw confetti in the air whilst clapping and cheering excitedly for her. “It was magic,” she said about that moment. “If you would have told me, in a million years I still wouldn’t have believed you,” said Gina about how she felt about her first win. She kept saying, “No, you’ve got the wrong girl.”
Her lump sum prize of $415,500 would help her tremendously with her fight against breast cancer and all the treatments she needed to be done. “I have a second chance. That’s what my whole life is about, second chances,” she shared.
A few weeks ago, Gina said that she felt lucky again as she felt before her first big lottery win. She asked her husband to go into a local pharmacy and buy a Quick Pick ticket for her to the value of $2.
On the 29th of April this year, she beat the odds again! She matched all twelve numbers! She won a $173,125 after taxes were applied to it. “We kind of didn’t believe it. We checked the same ticket six or seven times because we thought we misread it,” explained Gina.
Gina’s husband, Len, said that the new prize will be going towards her fight to help her beat cancer and get better. “It’s not something you can put into words. For us to have the good fortune of winning not just one big prize, but two – we are just very thankful for that,” said Gina with a huge smile.
Okay, we’re a bit teary-eyed now, we’ll admit.
Never give up the fight, use Gina Short as your inspiration! Even though she is fighting cancer, she still stayed in the game and thought positively.
Keep up the fight like Gina and soon you’ll be a millionaire, too.
