CHAMPAIGN -- People are rockin' out at a local bar to help a young girl battling a deadly disease. Riley McArtan is an 11-year old diagnosed with stage three thyroid cancer.

The community came together to Joneb's Bar and Grill to support "Rockin' 4 Riley," a benefit event to help Riley's family pay for her treatment and travel costs.

Although it hasn't been easy, Riley says she hopes her story can help others dealing with similar problems. The concert featured four local bands, silent auctions, as well as raffles.  Riley is getting ready to start radiation. She will be spending her birthday receiving treatment in Chicago.
