Paralyzed Teen's Graduation Promise

17-year-old high school student Patrick Ivison of San Diego was paralyzed most of his life because of a car accident that happened when he was just a year old. But he made a promise that he'd walk on stage to accept his high school diploma.

When Ivison appeared on stage during commencement ceremonies, cheers and a standing ovation greeted him, encouraging him every step of the way. With the help of his trainer, a custom walker and his service dog, Ivison accepted his diploma. He graduated with a 4.0 grade-point average, according to KGTV
