A Florida woman won $2 million playing a scratch-off lottery game the day after her daughter finished treatment for breast cancer, according to the Florida Lottery.
Geraldine Gimblet said it was the last ticket for the scratch-off game the gas station had. The gas station clerk actually had told her they were out of lottery tickets but she asked him to doublecheck because she liked the crossword ones.
Gimblet was joined by her daughter and granddaughter Friday to claim her big prize (pictured above). Her daughter started crying when she shared what the win meant to her, according to the lottery.
“I’m just so happy for her,” Gimblet’s daughter said. “The day before my mom bought this ticket, I rang the bell and walked out of the hospital after completing my last treatment for breast cancer.”
