That single mom Marie Holmes captured an estimated $188 million share of the jackpot might make you feel better about it. Holmes, a 26-year-old from Shallotte, North Carolina, has four kids, one of whom has cerebral palsy, Fox 8 reported. She recently had to quit her jobs at McDonald's and Walmart to take care of them. snip Holmes purchased her winning ticket at a gas station convenience store. When the numbers in Wednesday's drawing were announced, "I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I saw the ticket and checked it," she told WECT.
