Clarkston Woman, Facing Homelessness, Wins Lottery – The Good News
She'd been taking care of her mother full-time and said that this had been the "most difficult" year of her life...
...and then she won.
50-year-old Shawna Donnelly of Clarkston bought a Lucky for Life ticket from a 7-Eleven on Sashabaw. She opted for a $390,000 lump-sum payout. Donnelly has been taking care of her mother for the last year and has barely been making ends meet since.
She says that she plans to buy a car and a house, and save the rest.
