New York: She is struggling cancer for four years, but she wanted to see her daughter graduate from high school. A Maryland mom Darlene Sugg,  as her condition took a dire turn, got her wish with the help of school administrators who threw together a bedside cap-and-gown ceremony for the teen a month before the official commencement date.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the room as Glen Burnie High School Principal Vickie Plitt read a speech she had written just for Megan. Darlene Sugg managed to open her own eyes during the touching address.

“She was hanging on to see my proud moment,” Megan said.

Darlene Sugg, 47, died two days after her daughter received her diploma. Her husband, Steve Sugg, said he knows the ceremony brought her peace in her final hours.
