Tom’s Story

Tom, whose wife died of cancer at age 57, has placed all his winnings into a family trust from which regular donations to selected cancer based charities will be made. His children found out through television news that their Dad had hit the jackpot and that they were unlikely to see a cent.

Nevertheless all the Crist family have rallied around and started choosing who to donate the money to, which includes Calgary’s Tom Baker Cancer Centre where Tom’s wife was treated.

Tom is a retired president and chief executive of an electronics company and says he is perfectly happy with his lifestyle and that his wife would’ve been estastic about what he was doing with his winnings.
