I am happy for him and his wife and we are all close but there is no mention of giving us much, they said only 12,000 a year because of tax reason, hey they dont have to give us anything but me and another sibling are in a bad way and my house is ready for foreclosure so i feel a little hurt when they email us a 5 million dollar house there buying and i cant even buy food. how should i deal with this. It hurts because i would never treat them like a tax wright off. Im not a greedy person and i feel bad even expecting them to help i just thought thats what family does. Oh well life goes on.

    Your brother wasn't responsible for your problems before he won the lottery, why should he be responsible for them now?  You should continue to deal with your problems the same way you were before he came into extra money.  When relatives depend on their family for free money, they can never get enough, they will continue to have a need until it's all gone or the source is dried up.  If your brother offered you $12,000 a year because of the tax laws then you are a very lucky person.  If you were old enough to buy a house then you are old enough to pay for it yourself.  Good luck to you.

      You are right. I should not expect anything. And i just got into a very bad situation about a year ago and for medical reasons i can no longer keep up on my house payments. I guess im being silly and i should be thankful. Thank you for taking the time out to comment.

          I guess the biggest fear i have is them changing and becoming distant, I know i will make it out of my situation. if i won i would be the one to go broke because i would give everyone money, i know what its like to be without.

            This is the kind of attitude that tears families apart. Your brother has a family and he is not obligated to take care of you or his sibilings. Any bit of help is better than none!!!!  Be greatful the he even thought about giving you anything.

              Hi, have you told your brother about your situation, maybe that would help, if not at least 12,000 would help you out. Good luck .

                I have been in and out of bad situations as far as money goes, I guess it goes a little deeper though, Im afraid they wont be the same. That the money will change them. I am very happy for them and yes the other posts are right, he owes me nothing as far as money but im hoping he is still there for me as a brother. there is no price on family and your health.

                  Jockpotsister.........be happy that your brother is going to give you $12,000.  This is a beginning for you to prevent losing your home.  Call your lender and let them know you would like to negotiate a payment plan to forstall the loss.  Let them know what you can afford now, and ask them how much time they can give you to come up with additional monies.  Honestly, they do not want to take away your home.  Gice it a shot, and best of luck to you!

                  Good Luck!

                    Sorry, but what a bunch of BS is that?
                    As if he had to work for it himself...

                    As if with 35 mil in the bank his brother is going to go bankrupt, "the source is going to be dried up", if he would put up $120,000 instead of $12,000...!!! Confused

                    If i would win that amount of money my sister would not have to work another day in her life.
                    That is, if she would not throw out the money i would put in her account.

                    "Tax-reasons", has one ever.... Disapprove
                    Surely this brother will most likely end up on wellfare if he would donate more than $12,000... sure, for "tax reasons",

                    sounds very selfish to me...

                    Or not ofcourse, since they seem to be buying a $5,000,000 "dump"...

                    If anyone should grow a braintumor and suddenly feel like calling out for me, i'll be in the 'restroom', throwing up!!!!

                      When i hear comments like that, i wish you could be married to your sister (exclude the sex part)...I don't know did you all grew up together from small?

                      You are going to tell me her brother couldn't buy her a 100,000 house and then give her 12,000 a year?

                      His (and everyone's) biggest downfall like how i said before is the 5 million dollar house..By yourself a 5 million dollar house if you have above 65 million....

                        Jackpotsister - You have to look out for yourself. Please try to have a heart of love and gratitude for what you receive, not what is promised. Promises are broken all the time and we have to be happy with what we have no matter how bad it seems and have love in our heart, because anything else hurts us, not anyone else.

                        Food for thought........

                        Congratulations to your brother and your family!!

                          Sounds like the Crumps who won the $ 74M Megamillions jackpot and divided it among the brothers and their wives.  One of them  must have received a larger share.

                            Hi jackpotsister...are you saying your brother is going to give you $12,000 a year WOW I only wish... considering that I am on disability getting $144.00 a month talk about being stressed. I would be doing back flips if my back would allow. There is always a positive side to everything and just think about it before your brother's stroke of luck... were you getting $12,000 a year droped in your lap just for being a sibling. I think your brother is showing you 12000 reasons just how much he loves you. FEEL BLESSED BEACUSE, YOU ARE

                              Take the 12 grand a year tax free and mumble after you cash it "What goes around comes around"..Be happy with the 12 grand..Maybe if he gave you a mil you might be in bad shape after a year or two and be begging for more..Just be happy with what you get for nothing..."Life is just a bowel of cherrie's so why do I get all the pit's"....
