Here is an example of their altruism, although this time there were no patients involved but the nurses themselves. A group of 120 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurses decided to try out their luck with the lottery.

Their chances of winning were quite farfetched, but they decided to give it a try. Surprisingly, the winning numbers were announced, and they found out they had won $7,200. It was exhilarating.

Not only did they win, but they were just a number away from hitting the mega jackpot of $1.5billion.

Rather than split it, they decided to donate it to their members most in need, a fantastic gesture from these wonderful women.

They shared what remained of the $7,200 with two nurses, Gretchen Post and Casey Orellana, who were going through a tough time.

Gretchen's son, Jack, had passed away recently. He took his own life at the young age of 17, leaving Gretchen completely disrupted.

I know it's not the $1.6 billion but here is what we have to offer you. Hopefully, it'll help.
