I live in a 100 year old home in Erieville. My favorite hobby is work on that old house and it keeps me busy. This year, I put on a new porch floor and fixed the siding outside and put in a new floor upstairs. It was too much for me to tackle, but usually I try and do my own work with some help from friends and family. I am a single Mom with three beautiful children. They are all country music fans. I have been in radio for many years and in fact, my mother was a radio personality. I guess that is where I get it from. I get a real kick out of doing charity work and attend many of the events here in CNY. I would have to say that the CMA win was the high point in my career. It just doesn't get any better than that and it is thanks to you who listen to us and support us each and every morning. It wouldn't have happened without you. In my mind, it was a win for Central New York. I love working with Tom Owens. We have quickly become best friends.

It is hard for me to write about what I experenced when I almost lost my Alana at the age of two. She contracted spinal menengitus. I did not even know what it was at the time, but boy was she out of it. It took two trips to the Doctor before they admitted her. I knew something wasn't right. It was mother's intuition. I will never forget the day that they suggested that I call a minister in. She was struggling so. I was sure it was for last rights, but would not allow myself to think that. I slept at the hospital for two weeks on the floor, the couch, a chair...just praying most of the time. She wouldn't stop crying she was in so much pain. The tears are in my eyes as I write this. It was, by far, the worst experience of my life. I will never forget the caring, kind, nurses and Doctors at Upstate. And since then, a wonderful, new, childrens hospital has been built. I have toured the new facility and it is by far superior to anyplace else. Please make a donation....you never know when your loved one might be in the same position. All the money stays here. My Alana celebrated her wedding two weeks ago. I am so blessed. Thanks so much ....from me and my Alana...Becky
