It is always better to be very rich, than very broke, when you have a serious sickness. If you are broke, the hardships get multiplied. Get well soon Richie, our prayers are with you and your family.

    Agree. Especially in this country! We lived in Australia and Canada before moving here, and boy, the medical system is pretty brutal and unforgiving if you're not lucky enough to have some nicely subsidized medical insurance from your company.  Or lots of money.

      How sad for him to have been dealt such a bad hand after that lucky win. First getting cancer that's not responding to treatment and then his girlfriend leaves him. Despite that, he has an admirable positive outlook. I wish him well.

      It's when you are  down, that you find out, who your true friends are. Maybe the money in not flowing like it used to. In this day and age, $5mil. minus taxes, plus other expenditures, plus serious sickness, equals, be very careful with your money.

        For those stuck in an annuity, there are 3rd party companies that can buy out your annuity and give you a lump sum. Then you can go on a Bucket List trip!

        A lot of those 3rd party companies, will stick it to you, in the rear, when they know you are in a bind, and don't have much of a choice.

          Richie, I wish you a rapid recovery from your lung cancer!  It is good that you had agreed to the cancer tumor removal surgery; even though it couldn't be performed, by the surgeon you chose, in the end. 

          Maybe, Richie, you could learn the computer and browser searches at your public library or local computer training school this week.  Then research a surgeon that has had more lung cancer removal surgery successes, and then hire to perform your own surgery.

                  I remember reading about this back in 2008. I remember guys claiming he will be broke before long. He is not broke 5 years later.  I'll bet that even Pedro will not be broke 5 years from now. I think the media takes the few who piss off their jp's and sensationalizes them. Media has to be sensational to make the audience tune in. God Bless you Richie Randazzo. I hope you beat cancer.

                      Health will always take precedence before wealth in my book. Healthy mind, Healthy living...ever priceless yet taken for granted far too often.

                      The key as the man said is...to wake up each day...that is your blessing....

                      The best medical support one can have is the love and support of friends/family. May he be surrounded by genuine friends/family.

                          He's a nothing phony, what you see is what you get, salt of the earth type guy.

                          And he loves and takes care of his family and friends.

                          I like that guy.
