Leamington Woman Wins Dream Lottery's Grand Prize


A Leamington woman has a tough $1-million decision to make.

Mary Defrancisco was the grand prize winner of the Dream Lottery to support regional hospitals in London.

She has a choice between either a $1.8-million home in London, a condo along with $500,000, or $1-million.

When she was contacted, Defrancisco was worried it might be a bad joke.

Once she realized the win was real, she says, "I can't believe it, I'm feeling so blessed, this is news of a lifetime."

She has bought tickets in the past and debated buying this time, but decided she needed to keep supporting the hospitals as her family has experienced their care first-hand.
