She has swept Rochester off its feet. On Tuesday, a high school senior made an impression that has reached the national spotlight.
Courtney Wagner, who has been battling brain cancer for the past three and a half years, scored the first points in Canandaigua's basketball game. Her story has inspired many. Now Rochester is trying to get Courtney to California, so she can meet her favorite television talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Justin Granit had the privilege of speaking with Courtney on Thursday. You can see that interview by hitting play.
