Sometimes, a stroke of good luck can change a person's life forever, and for those of us who are struggling in life, that little bit of good fortune could make all the difference in the world.

If you don't believe me then this story might just change your mind: a man on his way to his last ever session of chemotherapy managed to win an incredible $200,000 prize on a lottery scratch card.
