Both mental and physical endurance are needed when battling the vicious disease, and sadly, most forms of treatment are extremely aggressive on the human body.

The physical and mental stress that they go through during their treatment is unimaginable, and it is a devastating reality that not everybody makes it through to the other side.

It is truly a victorious moment.

Lynne is a fifty-five-year-old mom of 3 who lives with her husband, David, in New Tredegar, Wales.

She was diagnosed in 2015, and she has been continuously getting treatment for the disease since.

Lynne was finally given the all-clear after nearly 4 years of battling the disease.

This wasn’t the only good news that Lynne was about to receive, however…

A mere ten minutes after opening the letter that contained the results of her all-clear diagnosis, her husband David came home from his job, where he works for British Airways.

And he rushed home to his wife when he had discovered he had won £1 million ($1.2 million).

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she recalls hugging her husband with joy after they each exchanged their happy news and she then went and had a 2-hour soak in the bath to let it all truly sink in.

The couple was in complete shock.

She said: “I’d just read the letter saying I had the all-clear when David came home from work to say we’d won the lottery.” “I can’t tell you what I said, it’s too rude, but I was in total shock.”

“I was shaking and was totally lost for words which never happens!” Lynne recalled. “I went and had a bath for 2 hours and I just laid there trying to take it all in.”

He said, “I went home to tell Lynne but she had some big news of her own.”

“The letter saying she had the all-clear is worth more than a million to me.”

David is planning a dream trip to the Mount Everest Base Camp next year, while Lynne intends on going to China for a vacation as it has been on her bucket list for a while now.

The couple plan on continuing to work and to be sensible with their winnings.

According to the Euromillions website, there have been a total of 967 Millionaire Maker draws, and a total of £1,953,000,000 in prizes given out.

The couple actually revealed that this is the third lottery win in their family.

A rather lucky family, some would say…

They are distantly related to fifty-eight-year-old Ade Goodchild, who won £71m on Euromillions in March, and David’s sister Judith was part of a Cardiff cigar factory syndicate that scooped a fortune back in the ’90s.

“It’s pretty amazing to have 3 big winners in one family,” David said. “We’ve been doing the lottery since it started – you put your money on but you don’t really expect to win a million.”

And most importantly, Lynne’s all-clear diagnosis. A National Lottery spokeswoman said: “David and Lynne have such a happy story to help us celebrate 25 years of the lottery.”
