BATON ROUGE - Ms. Betty Webber has been cooking baked goods for firefighters on all shifts at area fire stations since Hurricane Katrina.

Webber was featured in WBRZ anchor Sylvia Weatherspoon's community segment, 2 Make A Difference, Friday night at 10:00. Webber said she felt compelled to act when she saw the number of emergency responders around South Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina.

"I said, 'God, what can I do?' And, the answer came back, 'bake cakes, Betty,'" she said.

Webber, 78, is a 23-year cancer survivor.
