Local DJ See Even More Support As He Recovers From Cancer

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA-- A local DJ in Yakima is still seeing overwhelming support from the community as he recovers from cancer.

Saturday radio DJs from all over Yakima came together for a pancake breakfast to raise money for Joel Baker.

Baker was a DJ at KXDD for more than a decade when he was forced into an early retirement after being diagnosed with mouth cancer.

He is back home recovering now and his wife says to see Yakima support him is amazing.

"I want to thank everybody who has come out and supported us and donated things and it's...I just have no words.  I wish I had words so, thank you," said Joel's wife, Kelly Baker.

Two weeks ago his station had a pay for play to raise money for his recovery and hospital bills.

They collected more than $17,000.00 all going to help JB's family during their journey.
