Deserving Single Mom Wins Jackpot; Can Now Live Comfortable Life
Marie Holmes, of North Carolina, bought $15.00 worth of lottery tickets on her way to church. She didn't ever expect to actually win. But she did; $127 million lump sum to be exact. The single mother of 4, 3 daughters and 1 son with cerebral palsy, can now live a comfortable life. She was struggling to support her family while working fast food jobs. She says this will not change who she is, it will just allow her to give her children a better life. "I'm just grateful for this moment." She plans to finish college, buy her mom a house and care for her kids. Her son who has cerebral palsy will get all the special care he needs without having to worry about financial struggles. If anyone deserved to win this money, it's Marie.
