Mom,26, wins Powerball jackpot

North Carolina Mom Believes She Has Won the Largest Powerball Jackpot Ever! An unemployed mother of four kids is one of three winners who matched all the numbers in the more than 560 million dollar jackpot.

Marie Holmes, 26, of North Carolina said she used to work at McDonald’s and WalMart, but said she no longer has worry about providing for her son and three daughters.

“I was screaming in the house. Telling my kids, we made it, and they ran away talking about, ‘I scared them.’ I don’t have to worry about depending on nobody, I can do it all by myself. I can go back to school and make an even better life for my kids,” Holmes told WWAY.

Holmes said she was struggling financially after she had to leave her two jobs to care for her children, including one who has cerebral palsy.

Holmes is on her way to Raleigh to officially claim her ticket and get some much needed financial advice.

On the list of people to help with the prize includes her immediate family members.
