A UK man has won two parts of a three part bet against mesothelioma. In 2006, the man was diagnosed with mesothelioma and was given only a few months to live. Afterward, he went to a bookie to place a bet, saying he would outlive his prognosis.
He placed a three part bet that he would live through June 1 of 2007, 2009 and 2010. So far, he has won the first two portions of the bet, paying 5,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds. The next payout will be 15,000 pounds if he survives another year.
