Cancer Patient Wins Lottery
A man from Naples, New York who was diagnosed with lung cancer has won $ 1 million in a lottery. Wayne Schenk who is a former Marine is currently suffering from an inoperable lung cancer.

Doctors have given him a year or at the maximum eighteen months of life. At this juncture, he has won this lottery. But the irony that is accompanying this lottery win is that he would be paid $50,000 in annual installments over twenty years.

Schenk is a chain smoker and his parents have also died due to lung cancer. With the prize money, he wishes to get himself admitted in Pennsylvania hospital which treats people in advanced stages of cancer.
