Teen Misses Her Graduation - Shows Up For Private Ceremony With Sick Grandmother Instead
  • Family is the most important thing in the world, and we all want to be there for special family moments, celebrating the happy times and special achievements of our nearest and dearest.

    Unfortunately, life can sometimes get in the way of our plans, ruining our chances of being with our loved ones in the moments that matter the most.

    That seemed to be the case for Sharon Thompson, a grandma who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.

    In order to treat the disease, the 70-year-old had to get a bone marrow transplant at Houston Methodist Hospital.

    Unfortunately, this surgery happened at a really bad time, as Sharon’s 16-year-old granddaughter, Taylor, was about to graduate high school.

    It was supposed to be a happy moment for the whole family to enjoy together, but with Sharon in a hospital bed, it seemed impossible that the loving grandma would be able to enjoy the celebration with her granddaughter.

    Little did Sharon know that Taylor had prepared a very special surprise for her!

    She had arranged for Sharon to watch the whole graduation ceremony on a live video feed, but there was an extra special secret that Sharon never could have predicted!

    The old lady was lying in bed and watching the video, when the announcer said something that made her heart skip a beat.

    The next graduate is not here this evening because she has a surprise for someone special in her life. Her grandmother has been battling cancer this past year and can’t be at graduation, so she is watching the ceremony live over the internet right now. Dressed in her cap and gown, our graduate is going to walk into her grandmother’s hospital room as I call her name.

    That graduate was none other than Taylor herself, who suddenly appeared in Sharon’s room, dressed up in her cap and gown, just as the announcer had said!

    Sharon couldn’t believe her eyes and both grandma and granddaughter started to cry as they shared a happy hug.

    Even though Sharon was tired and weak, she felt so much energy and life rushing into her body at that precise moment, and that’s what the power of love is truly all about!

    Here’s what Taylor had to say about it:

    To me, graduation was much more special how I did it. It was the ultimate graduation for me.

    It was definitely a wonderful way for this young girl to celebrate her personal achievement, and the story gets even better from there!

    The touching moment was filmed and uploaded to YouTube, and many viewers asked what had happened next and whether or not Sharon was doing better.

    Taylor’s brother, Carter, saw the comments and replied to say “She is much better”. We’re so happy to hear such good news, and let’s hope Sharon gets many more happy moments in future with her beloved grandchildren and other family members too. In the meantime, check out the lovely surprise for yourself in the inspiring clip below.
