Don't feel too bad if you haven't won the lottery, because this person probably needed it more.

Kelsey Zachow is a 24-year-old single mother from Mt. Clemens, Michigan who worked two jobs to help support her family. Her boyfriend Billy Bartlett, also a single parent, has been out of work for a year now from his construction company. Clearly times haven't been good on Zachow and Bartlett. But when Zachow purchased a lottery ticket on Friday, June 13th, her luck changed forever.

Zachow was informed 11 days after purchasing the ticket that she had won the $66 million dollar jackpot. Stunned, Zachow went straight home to tell her boyfriend, who became ecstatic as well. Zachow hired a lawyer and financial planner before collecting the money to ensure that she handles it wisely.

Zachow opted for the lump sum of $27 million, and has some pretty fun plans for it. Cars, vacations and a new house are all on the mom's agenda. But Zachow also plans to use the money for college funds, both for her son and her boyfriend's child.
