Hospital Graduation Fulfills Mom's Dying Wish

Hospital Graduation Fulfills Mom's Dying Wish

Like a typical graduation ceremony, the graduation march played, the graduate wore a cap and gown and all of the school officials were present. But this ceremony took place in an Ohio hospital room in January as a dying wish for the sole graduate's mother. She died the next day.

Jennifer Linnabary's last wish after a four-year battle with mantle cell lymphoma, a rare blood cancer, was to see her son Ben graduate from high school.

"We knew that my mom wasn't doing well at all and the last thing she wanted to see before she passed away was my brother graduating," Linnabary's daughter Becca Asimus told ABCNews.com.

Family friends made some phone calls on Saturday and within a matter of hours all of the necessary school officials had assembled at Linnabary's bedside along with some family and friends for an official Colerain High School graduation.

1. My hat is off to all who could make this moment come true for that mother.


I'm glad that she could be there for her son.

I fucking hate cancer.
