Man who won the lottery dies of cancer just three weeks after

Man who won the lottery dies of cancer just three weeks after

A New York man who won the lottery has died only weeks after.

Donald Savastano was the lucky winner of the Merry Millionaire scratch-off lottery earlier this month. But shortly after he won, his doctors diagnosed him with stage 4 cancer and he was given only a few weeks to live. Sadly, Donald died last Friday.

He claimed his winnings in January and chose the lump sum payment of $661,800. The carpenter then disclosed that his new found wealth will help him pay off debt and he'll invest the rest in his future.

“Being a self-employed carpenter, I didn’t really have a plan for retirement,” the 51-year-old self-employed carpenter explained to WBNG-TV at the time.

“The money will help with that. I don’t have any other extravagant plans. I’ll buy a new truck, pay off some debt and invest for the future.”

Donald was sold the ticket by Danielle Scott, who said a friend of Donald’s came and told her that he was very ill in hospital.

She said: “He was self-employed, he didn’t have insurance, he hadn’t been feeling good for a while I guess, and when he got the money he went into the doctor.

“He had a friend come and talk to me, and they told me that he was very sick and that he had brain and lung cancer and that he was in the hospital and they didn’t think he was going to make it.”

Savastano grew up on Long Island and learned the carpentry trade from his dad, according to an obituary published on Sunday by Lester R. Grummons Funeral Home in Oneonta.
