News Across the World

I received the neatest email today that I just had to share.
I am a native Mississippian living in Moscow, Russia with my husband and two boys. Through the wonders of technology (internet) I watch the WLBT 10:00 news while my boys are waiting for the bus to take them to school (we are 9 hours ahead of MS). I have been growing my hair since October after hearing you mention it on your report. My mother, 79 at the time, was diagnosed with colon cancer in early 2000. We were very blessed that she did not have to go through any treatment after her surgery and is still cancer free today. Unfortunately, I will not be able to be there for the big day in May, but hope to have the required 8 inches by the time I get there in July. Thank you for your inspiration and encouragement that you pass on regularly.
Growing for a great cause,
Becky A. Hennington
originally from Wesson, MS
Also a proud graduate of MSU!

Becky's email made my day. To know that someone across the world was motivated to grow her hair because of seeing my WLBT weathercasts via the internet warms my heart. More importantly, Becky is giving back in honor of her mother and the health she is now enjoying.
