sharedwinningsLast month we told you about some nurses who won the lottery in New Jersey, but another group recently got lucky in Missouri. A group of NICU nurses at Mercy Children’s Hospital St. Louis had a $10,000 winning ticket, but that’s not the reason they’re on the show this week. It’s because of what they did with the money that makes them random act heroes. After taxes the $10,000 would be 72 hundred dollars and splitting it between 126 nurses would only leave $56 each, so they ended up giving the money to two of their co-workers, Nurse Gretchen Post and neonatologist Casey Orellana. On the night the Mega Millions winner was announced, Gretchen’s 17-year-old son Jack committed suicide, so it will go to funeral costs. And Casey’s husband Phil was recently diagnosed with sarcoma cancer, so the rest will help their family. It’s the season of giving and these folks nailed it!
