Yakima Valley residents help raise over $17,000 for a local DJ recovering from cancer surgery.
Country radio host Joel "JB" Baker underwent oral cancer surgery a few days ago -- doctors told him the operation could cost him his ability to speak.
To help offset the cost, his radio station set up a fundraiser where people can request a song by pledging money.
The fundraiser collected over $15,000 it's first day.
