Two-time cancer survivor wins lottery jackpot in Oregon


Stu MacDonald, a two-time cancer survivor from Oregon, won $4.6 million in Oregon’s Game Megabucks lottery last week.

“I am a very lucky guy,” MacDonald said in a press release. “I have survived cancer twice and here I am. This is amazing.”

MacDonald, who plays the lottery weekly, opted for the $2.3 million lump sum so he took home $1.56 million after taxes.

Every time he played the lottery, Stu’s wife Claudia would tell him to “pick the winning ticket,” and on Sept. 7, he finally did.

The ticket was purchased at Ashley’s Cafe in Bend, Oregon.
