Wednesday's "JB PAY-FOR-PLAY" extravaganza was a HUGE success - thanks to The Double D Nation's generosity -- we raised over $17,000!
On behalf of JB, his family and his RADIO YAKIMA family -- we say THANK YOU! As many already know - KXDD Afternoon Air Personality “JB” JOEL BAKER had to undergo surgery a 2nd time for the Cancer on his tongue. JB came through the radical, radio-career-ending-surgery with flying colors and his doctors believe they were able to get ALL of the cancer. However – it’s going to be a long road and lots of treatments will follow. JB is loved by everyone who knows him and is a loving husband and father of two small children – so this has been a real hardship for their family. To help his family defray the costs, we have set up “JB Jars” to collect donations at Frank’s Tire Factory Stores in Union Gap & Selah – and you can drop off a donation at our studios in Downtown Yakima. There is also a special “Give Forward account” set up for JB and his family. Here's the link to donate directly: https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/cxq3/baker-s-beat-cancer-fund. And you can donate at any area Solarity Credit Union Branch to the Joel Baker Fund.
There was an excellent article on 01-03-14 in Yakima Herald-Republic written by Molly Rosbach. You can learn more about JB's battle there.
