A local teenager wanted to make a difference after his teacher was diagnosed with cancer.

Zacharay Hughey, 13, is a student at Springville Middle School. He wanted to help out his former English teacher, Mrs. Johnson.

Hughey set up a fundraiser at Sky Zone in Cheektowaga, and the money raised will help his former teacher pay for her treatments.

Hughey says his aunt was diagnosed with cancer two years ago.

Sky Zone has agreed to donate 25 percent of its daily revenue to the cause.
