Moving from their government housing flat in West Rockhampton to a beachside mansion, in Salt Village Kingscliff, worth a million dollars must have been a lifetime experience for this humble couple. It is a classic example of rags to riches story.
This down to earth couple that was used to a simple life won the one million dollar home after participating in the Mater Prize Home Lottery. Having spent their five year marriage taking care of Michelle's ill parents on a fulltime basis, winning the house was a dream come true for the couple. They had always struggled to get by life, living in a government housing just the size of the lounge room of the Mater Prize Home that they won.
"We are moving from three bedrooms and one bathroom to an expensively and fully furnished, three bedrooms and office, two bathrooms, three toilets and pool" Michelle was quoted saying. The life-changing call which came just two days before Christmas must have been the most perfect Christmas gift anybody could get. Michelle confirmed it when she said that it was the ultimate Christmas present that shocked them.
However, at first her husband thought that it was a big hoax. They had become Mater VIP members in September, whereby they spent $100 every month for 100 chances to win. Having taken care of Michelle's parents for such a long time, the couple was obviously touched by sickness which led the pair to sign up as VIP members so as to help raise money for research and taking care of sick babies and young children at the Mater hospitals.
Apart from taking care of her sick parents, Michelle said that as a young girl, she was friends with a girl who suffered from leukemia. The couple was happy to stay in their new home while down for presentation in the month of December. Alan will now move to a new job when they start living in their new home while Michelle stays in Rockhampton to take care of her parents for the time being. Talk of a life - changing experience and this couple presents a perfect example. It is a confirmation that participating in lottery to win a prize home in Kingscliff was a major turning point in their lives and you know what? It might happen to you too.
