Imagine receiving a call that changes your life?
Once Lisa of Adelaide realised the call telling her she had won first prize in the Hospital Home Lottery wasn’t a friendly prank, her disbelief instantly turned to jubilation.
“It truly was a life-changing moment when I got the call about my winning ticket, I still can’t believe it actually,” she said.
“I am completely overwhelmed and am just so appreciative.”
Lisa bought her ticket in support of the cause not really thinking too much about the potential for winning a prize.
“I did my nursing training at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital so I knew about the wonderful work being done – it is such a great reason to be involved in the lottery as medical research helps all of us”, Lisa said.
“As soon as I got the call from Paul (Flynn, CEO of The Hospital Research Foundation) I quickly went on-line to take a tour of the house – it is truly spectacular, life-changing actually,” she said.
With her husband away working and currently out of phone range, Lisa said she was quietly celebrating with her young children until she could deliver the good news to him later that night.
“I’m not sure he will believe me to start with… he’ll take some convincing but he’ll be absolutely thrilled,” said Lisa.
“We thank each and every person who bought a ticket in the Hospital Home Lottery – without your ongoing and generous support we just couldn’t assist the incredible research that is both improving lives and saving the lives of our family and friends,” said THRF CEO Paul Flynn.
