Someone must love Donna Osbourne who is 75 years old since she bought a Monopoly Own It All scratch off ticket recently to celebrate finishing radiation treatments for breast cancer and her upcoming birthday in Leola Pennsylvania at a Speedway store in June. Donna decided to play the scratch off ticket at the store since she and her daughter were at the airport waiting for a flight to visit relatives in Florida when she had some free time before she and her daughter were able to catch a flight to Florida after a few flight delays. Donna mentioned that her plans of spending her prize money of $5 million dollars before taxes is continue working as well as maybe investing some of her winnings and take a trip to Alaska one day.

Despite her advanced age and state of health, it appears that fortune has been on her side. In order to protect herself and her health in the future, I hope she can spend that money sensibly and carefully. That amount of money should be enough to cover her medical expenses and allow her to live a happy life. But given her age and state of health, life would obviously be extremely precarious in her case.

I gave up playing scratch off tickets myself many years ago due to lack of money.

I am so happy for her. Beating cancer is the big win of the day. The rest is icing on the cake. I hope she has a great life from now on. Congrats to Donna!

That is a big prize for a scratch-off lottery. Good luck to her, after going through a hard time with her cancer.

I think she should be able to make that trip to Alaska sooner rather than later. That $5 million should be worth at least $3 million after Uncle Sam takes his cut.
