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.

Supposedly I have ten weeks left of chemo to go which will put me a few days after Christmas for my last one. It seems like a lifetime away. So far I have handled it pretty well.
Every week though, someone who is getting the treatment becomes sick as a dog and everyone starts running around and all heck breaks loose. I am lucky that I sleep mostly through it. It is not painful. It is an IV. When you think of the strong killing drugs that are in the IV, that is when it could get to me I suppose. I just try to sleep.
They say that since I had a double mastectomy, that I probably do not need to have the radiation afterwards. Ten weeks isn't a real long time I guess, but then it will take forever for my hair to grow back. I think It will be a year before things finally seem to be a bit normal. I
asked my best friend yesterday, who has a laryngectomy (where they remove your voice box), do you ever adjust to your body being different? She said yes, it becomes a part of who you are. Now I look at myself in the mirror and I feel deformed, but she says I will get used to it. She ought to know. - Becky
