Back Page: Getwell card includes winning lottery ticket

NEW CITY, N.Y. — A Pennsylvania man recovering from surgery has won $7 million off a lottery ticket tucked into his get-well card. Joseph Amorese, of Easton, got the ticket from his father, who lives in the hamlet of Congers in Rockland County, New York. Amorese had just undergone hernia surgery. A few scratches later on the “$7 million Golden Ticket,” and he was feeling great. “I scratched the ticket and it was a good thing I was already sitting down because I was shocked. I was — and still am — in complete disbelief,” Amorese said. “I had surgery so I didn’t jump up and down, but in my mind I was jumping up and down,” the beaming winner recalled Wednesday. He sent a photo of the ticket to his dad, who agreed that it was a winner.
