Teen With Cerebral Palsy Disorder Walks for 1st Time to Accept High School Diploma at Graduation

VIDEO Teen With Cerebral Palsy Disorder Walks for 1st Time to Accept High School Diploma at Graduation

Like the other high school seniors around him, Micah McDade prepared hard for graduation day. But unlike those classmates, Micah’s preparation took a little more muscle.

Micah, who was born with cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair, took his first steps in public during his graduation ceremony last Friday.

After wheeling himself to the stage, Micah stood up and made his way across the stage, with the help of a walker, to accept his diploma. His senior classmates gave him a standing ovation.

He spent months in rehabilitation getting ready for the moment, according to Okmulgee News Network.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been doing this a long time,” the announcer said as Micah was helped back into his wheelchair. “That is the best ever!”
