CHARTIERS, Pa. — A Pennsylvania graduate defied the odds by walking across the stage to accept her high school diploma Friday night.
Doctors put two metal rods and 12 screws in Audriana's back. She spent months in a rehab center and is now in intensive physical therapy.
"What am I going to do about graduation? When I get married? All the things you dream about? Here I am, and I can do it because I didn't give up," she said.
Michrina plans to go to Duquesne University in the fall and hopes to find a career in the medical field so she can help others.
