Woman who gave away lotto winnings gets gift

Posted: Updated:

When Iowa native Michelle Bristol hit a lotto jackpot at Christmastime last year, she gave away most of her winnings.

She used the $30,000 in prize money to help her family, pay of layaways for strangers and adopted three families from the Boys and Girls Club.

But she ended up giving away so much of her prize, there wasn't enough money left for her to get her teeth fixed.

But her dentist decided to pay it forward, gifting her with $10,000 worth of dental repairs.
