Cancer Crush concert held in honor of student

A concert to benefit kids fighting cancer took place on Saturday at Fairport High School, but without the girl who originally came up with the idea.

Hannaah Metzler organized benefits for children fighting cancer all while battling brain cancer herself.  Hannah passed away last month.

The second annual “Crush Cancer” concert raised money for local kids battling the disease.  The proceeds will go to the Golisano Children’s Hospital’s “Bright Eyes” fund. 

Another part of the proceeds will also go to a memorial fund that was setup in Hannah’s name.

“A lot of people loved Hannah, and she was my sister. She belonged to so many people, and she was a beautiful girl. We miss her very much,” said Luke Metzler, Hannah’s brother.

Saturday’s concert included performances from the U of R Yellowjackets and the Fairport High School a capella group.

DOT looking into East Rochester intersection

A young girl sprung to action after a car nearly went through a home in East Rochester. The girl started a petition to get a stop sign at Washington Street and West Avenue, but there's still no progress.

So what's the hold up? News10NBC took that question to the Department of Transportation.

The family tells us it's just a matter of time until another crash happens and someone is either killed or seriously injuring. On Friday, we found out the Department of Transportation is now looking at the intersection. Possible solutions are a stop sign or flashing lights, but that could take a while.

Angel Delmadoros says, "We hear bang, look out the window, and my boyfriend Ben says look, yet another one."

Angel Delmadoros and her kids have seen two car crashes outside their home at Washington Street and West Avenue in less than two weeks. most recently yesterday morning.

Meet Champ!

Meet Champ!

Poor Champ has been at Lollypop Farm more than once in his life, most recently because his owner could no longer afford to care for him. He is an 11-year-old Chow Chow mix who will stick to you like Velcro - he loves being around his owner. He likes back scratches and chin rubs, and will gladly keep you company any night of the week! He has a great smile, too. Lollypop Farm recommends Champ go to a home with kids age 10 or older, and he needs to meet any dogs already in the home. Lollypop Farm is celebrating Spring Break with 25% off adoption fees on all cats and dogs through Saturday the 19th. Champ is also eligible for the Seniors-for-Seniors program so approved adopters age 60 or older can bring him home for free. To find out more about Champ, call 223-1330 or visit him at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Lex, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, is still available!
