The good news is: Lottery millionaire says he'll help charities, friends

I needed a feel-good story like this. The news has been so grim lately.

Ohio man on kidney dialysis plans to give back to those who helped him

LOGAN, Ohio — A local man won $5 million in the Ohio Lottery Tuesday, but even though he's dependent on kidney dialysis he’s already planning to share it.

Phillip Withem, of Logan, won the second chance drawing called the Top Prized Drawing.

"I'm going to help people because I love it. It makes me feel good and I think that's what God put us here for," he said.

Withem's life is sustained by kidney dialysis three times a week and said his sense of humor gets him by for now. He said his plans include helping some children's charities and friends who helped him during his illness.
