‘It’s incredible what he’s doing’: Calgary’s $40M lotto winner good to his word as he hands over $1.2 million cheque to cancer centre
A Calgary man has wasted no time in starting to give away his $40 million lottery win to charity.
Tom Crist was at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre on Tuesday, presenting a cheque for $1.2 million.
He says the centre is near and dear to his heart because staff there took such good care of his wife, Janice, as she was dying of cancer a couple of years ago.
“I’m pretty proud of him, I wish I was half the man he is,” said his son, Dallas Crist. “It’s incredible what he’s doing. It just kind of blows my mind. I’m excited for him. If my mom was alive she’d do the exact same thing. (Photo: Facebook)
