Crush Cancer Concert honors patient with brain cancer
Friends and family of Hannah Metzler, a Fairport High School (FHS) junior and UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital
patient who passed away last month after a battle with brain cancer, will gather in memory of Hannah at the second Crush Cancer Concert at 2 p.m. April 19, at the FHS auditorium. Hannah and her brother Luke, a member of the University of Rochester’s YellowJackets, organized the first benefit concert last year and, before she passed, Hannah asked that her family make sure the event she was planning come to fruition for its second year.
Last year’s event raised more than $18,000 to benefit cancer-related causes. In addition to supporting Rochester's Teens Living with Cancer (TLC)
and a memorial fund being set up in Hannah’s name, this year’s concert will also benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Bright Eyes Fund, a fund aimed at improving the lives of children with brain tumors
and their families throughout their treatment and beyond.
