#5 Blames the Gambling on the tumor, BULLSHIT, it's the huge win (If any) That gets them.

I had a tumor (Now removed) and I don't Gamble, its a losing bet, I save my money.

I have a brother, I think he gambles, My Mom's inheritance ($800 K) Is gone, yes he dipped into it (Illegally) and it's just vanished.

#6 Inoperable is the tumor of greed. She'll likely succumb to it. Just my guess.

#7 Knock over a liquor store for a couple of hundred bucks and you get five to ten in prison. Steal $2.1 million from a charity and get treatment for your addiction.

#10 The 'bet more than $1 Billion' is, I think, somewhat deceptive.

Suppose you have $15 Million in assets. For two years, you bet $1.5 Million per day, almost every day, and lose a net of $17k on average per day. After 700 days, you would have bet about $1,000,000,000. Your loss would be about $12,000,000.

#11 correct. She won more than $1 billion. She lost more. I guess she'll make up for it in volume
