Cancer Survivor and Veteran Wins Lotto 6 Times

Donna Boyd-Warren won $150,000 with six lucky tickets.

— -- A Virginia woman is celebrating after winning big six times in her state lotto.

Donna Boyd-Warren won $150,000 from six winning tickets in Virginia's Cash5 lotto. Each ticket had the same numbers and was worth $25,000.

"Life goes on as usual for that I'm happy," she said. "We were blessed with the winnings."

Boyd-Warren, also a Vietnam-era veteran, said she usually buys lottery tickets twice a week for fun.

"Maybe two times a week I pick six sets of the same numbers," she said. "I look on the lotto online and pick the numbers that happen the most."

Boyd-Warren said she was thankful for the winnings, but that her experience with cancer meant that "most of all I'm thankful to be alive."
