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.

Here I sit wrapped in a blanket with a turban on my head to keep me warm as I broadcast these early morning hours from Studio E (Erieville). It is so different. I would rather be in the studio like normal. The show is going well. I am having a hard time keeping my spirits up. They said that this would happen. I am on depression pills which definitely help. My Mom stays over every Thursday night to take me to my Thursday Chemo and blood appointments. She wants to hear every little word the Doc says. You could only imagine if it were your own child.
So many wonderful people have bought food by. It is so appreciated. I struggle with my energy. It might get worse, it might not be as bad. I just take one day at a time. I am dating a fabulous guy. We met up again at Dad's funeral this year. He has been a rock for me. I am not sure if he can handle all of this though. I would understand if he couldn't. I have no hair, no chest and I am fighting depression and most of my time is spent at the Doctor...who would want that? He says none of that matters to him. Right now I am painting my fingernails, as I read that it helps keep your nails longer when they start falling out from the chemo. I guess I am having kind of a bad day. At lease my body is starting to heal from all of the surgeries. - Becky
