Man Uses Lottery Winnings to Buy Billboards to Help Save Women’s Lives

 

After 79-year-old Jack Maier won the lottery in 2006, he decided to use the winnings to rent a bunch of billboards around town to remind young women to pay attention to their health.

The billboards going up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin cost $2,000 each for only one month of advertising, but after losing his wife, Myrna, to breast cancer, Maier was determined to urge other women to get mammograms, and second opinions.
