Saturday, April 13, 2019

Richard Beare, from Charlotte in North Carolina, has experienced light shine through the darkness he is currently experiencing after finding out that he’s won $250,000 with the North Carolina Lottery after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Beare, a retired auto mechanic doesn’t regularly play the lottery, however on this occasion, he decided to stop off at Quick Trip which is located in Charlotte and buy four $5 tickets which were Carolina Black tickets. Upon checking them, it was fourth time lucky for him as his very last ticket was the winner – he wasn’t sure if he’d won until he clarified what the matching numbers meant with the clerk. Beare then said “Well, I guess we just won $250,000 then”, and the clerk was so surprised she kept looking at him and the lottery ticket he was holding. The winnings will be worth around $176,876 after several withholdings, and Beare said that having this money feels great and also makes him feel relieved. “I recently got diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer” he explained, and this has contributed to how he plans to spend the winnings... He plans to take his wife to Italy, which is a dream for her and also something Beare will enjoy as he wants to travel whilst he is able to. What a lovely story, this event will sure brighten up his life.
