This man realized he had won $7 million from a local lottery while he was at a hospital recovering from a recent surgery.
What does the best get well card include? A winning lottery ticket for $7 million, of course! And that’s exactly the type of get well card Joseph Amorese received earlier this March! The 46-year-old man was hospitalized and was recovering from a surgery when he found out he was the proud owner of a winning lottery ticket. Mr. Amorese, who’s residing in Easton, Pennsylvania, US, with his wife, was shocked to discover his whopping prize. As it turned out, his father had sent him a wishing card with a lottery ticket tucked inside it. The 46-year-old winner claims that his dad usually buys tickets for his family. Thus, Joseph scratched the ticket like he did with every other lottery ticket he got from his father and was surprised to find out he had won $7 million.
Joseph recalls how he immediately called his wife to tell her they had become millionaires and how his wife was so stunned by the news that she couldn’t even say anything in response! Fortunately, the 46-year-old, who was recovering from surgery, didn’t get injured by the good news and now he’s the proud owner of millions of dollars. According to official reports, Mr. and Mrs. Amorese will get to keep only $4.6 million after taxes. On the other hand, Joseph’s dad bought the winning ticket for $1, so it’s definitely a gigantic win!
The new millionaire gushed how he’ll take his wife on a second honeymoon with some of the money although he stated that his life won’t change for the millions and he will keep working as any other average American.
