Tom Crist wasn’t even sure at first which game he had won. He said all he did was pay for the subscription every year. He also said he occasionally won a few bucks every now and then but never something this grand, like $40M!
After battling cancer for 6 years, Tom’s wife passed away. He said they were lucky to have the Tom Baker Cancer Center to treat and care for his wife the time she was here. This could be one of the reasons why Tom has chosen to donate his winnings, instead of keeping it.
Tom and his children have not yet decided which charities to donate to, but Tom Baker Cancer Center will be at the top of their list to receive a heart felt donation.
Best wishes to the Crist family!
