In this photo taken, Thursday evening, May 26, 2016, Stephen Dwyer, right, who could not wear a cap and gown nor sit with his classmates, leads graduates during the Dobson High School graduation in Mesa Ariz. Dwyer, who withdrew from classes his junior year to receive a lifesaving bone-marrow transplant to treat high-risk leukemia, returned for classes his senior year and he worked to catch. He is only 2.5 credits short of meeting the requirements to graduate from Dobson. He expects to graduate in December.
