She won the lottery a month after CBC News first reported on her story.

"It's like this big ball of weight has been lifted off my shoulders," she told CBC Stokes after winning. "The stress is gone, the anxiety of being sick. I know I can't beat stage 4 because you're a ticking time bomb, but it's given me hope that maybe it can go dormant for awhile ... and I can live my life."

"This money wasn't about going out and buying a new house or taking trips," she said. "This was about survival. I can survive now, and my kids can survive."

Bishop was diagnosed in April 2016 with stage 4 triple negative breast cancer.
