East Texas Woman Lends A Helping Hand To Tornado Victims

We caught up with Christy Stennis-Ball at Tyler Pounds Regional Airport late this afternoon.  She has worked with the Red Cross for nearly 40 years, and Thursday, she had her bags packed, ready to help those in tornado-ravaged Tennessee.

"Anytime you go out and help someone, you get this energy--this feeling," said Stennis-Ball.  "This is my mission.  I believe this is what the Lord put me on earth to do."

Stennis-Ball said she is committed to staying in Tennessee to help storm victims for the next three weeks.
