Katy

Hey Tri-State! I wanted to first thank everyone for all the support over the last few years. Working at WAYZ has been an awesome experience and it is mainly because of you. A little about me? Well, I am from Reading, Pa and went to York College to earn my degree in Speech Communication. I am in a sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon, and my sisters have had a huge impact on my life. I have great friends and an even better family. My younger brother David is my best friend and I am so blessed to have such a great sibling. I rescued a 3 legged cat, named Uno, who makes me smile everyday. I have always been a very upbeat, annoying girl who always has a smile on her face. Lastly, I couldn’t imagine working so closely with anyone other than Tiny. Tiny has become one of my greatest friends and I am so glad we got paired up to try and make your mornings a little brighter!  I have always loved radio and microphones and I am so lucky that now I get paid to talk on one. It’s fantastic! Feel free to email me katy@wayz.com at anytime with requests, stories…anything! Thanks again for making my job the best job in the world.

Quick-Me-Up

by Katy posted Jul 17 2013 8:56AM
Todays Quick-Me-Up, in my opinion, was the best story we've shared in a while.  It literally brought me to tears reading it.  If you missed it....

A 25-year-old man in Wales named Dan Black was paralyzed in a bike accident four years ago. And since then, he's been raising money for a stem cell treatment that might allow him to walk again.

 The problem is, the treatment doesn't exist yet. So he's been hanging onto the money and waiting for science to catch up. That is, until he recently heard about a five-year-old boy with cerebral palsy named Brecon Vaughan.

 Just like Dan, Brecon can't walk. The difference is, a treatment DOES exist that might help Brecon. But it costs about $90,000.

 In the past four years, Dan has raised $30,000 for his stem cell surgery. And he's decided to donate ALL OF IT to Brecon.

 Brecon's parents had already raised about $16,000 . . . meaning Dan's donation put them over the halfway point.

 Their story made national news in Britain last week, which prompted MORE people to donate. And less than a week later, Brecon's parents say they've REACHED their $90,000 goal.

Here is Brecon and Dan
