ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (WWLP) – If health is wealth, a Massachusetts man is doubly blessed after heart surgery in November led to a million dollar lottery jackpot.

Alexander McLeish of Attleborough claimed a prize of $ 1 million (before taxes) in the lottery ‘s “$ 5,000,000 100X Cashword” instant ticket game on Nov. 26, according to the Massachusetts State Lottery. Alexander chose the cash option over his prize and received a one-time payment of $ 650,000 (before taxes).

A friend bought Alexander a recovery card with three scratch tickets after he had open heart surgery earlier in November. When he scratched off the “Your Letters” section of the winning ticket, the letters revealed his initials, A, W, M. The ticket also showed the word “heart” in the bottom row of the winning ticket.
