A cancer suffer has won an incredible $200,000 while heading to hospital for his final chemotherapy treatment.

Ronnie Foster of North Carolina, scooped the incredible jackpot on a Win it all scratch card and claimed the prize on Friday.

Ronnie a retired transportation worker has said  ‘I bought a $1 ticket and won $5. ‘I decided to trade it in for a $5 ticket. At the last second, I decided to buy two tickets instead of one.’

Foster said his first ticket was a dud – but that he was overcome with shock on realizing he’d won the maximum prize on the second one.

He recalled: ‘I saw all those zeroes and I froze. ‘I didn’t believe it until I gave it to the clerk at the counter to scan. ‘When it showed,

“Go to lottery headquarters,” I started shaking. I couldn’t believe it.’ Foster’s win came to $141,501 after tax, with the winner now planning to spend some of the cash on his medical bills, and save the rest.

He explained: ‘I have good insurance. ‘But there is still some cost. This will make it a whole lot easier.’ The Win It All ticket was released last December, and is scheduled to end in November. Foster won its last top prize.

What an incredible and positive story.
