GOOD NEWS: Guy Beats Cancer TWICE, Then Hits the Lottery

A two-time cancer survivor from Bend won $4.6 million on a Megabucks ticket.

According to the Oregon Lottery, each time Stu MacDonald buys a Megabucks ticket, his wife would say, "Get the winning ticket." But when he went on Saturday, she forgot to say it.

MacDonald ended up buying a winning ticket anyway.

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

Oregon Lottery said MacDonald won on a quick pick ticket he bought at Ashley's Cafe in Bend.

MacDonald reportedly opted for the bulk sum payment of $2.3 million, and took home $1.56 million after taxes.
