This Week’s Best of the Web, Featuring a Heart Transplant Patient’s Virtual High School Graduation

Hey girls! Happy (almost) weekend!

One of our goals here at PI is to bring you the best of the best on the web each week, so we’d love to hear what you are interested in knowing about. What do you love and want to see more of? Let us know in the comments!

Awesome video

Recent high school graduate and heart transplant patient Taylor Haberman sadly missed a lot of benchmark moments her senior year. That’s why we’re uber-happy that she didn’t have to miss out on graduation…as she was able to “walk” via technology!

Haberman, who lives in Florida, was in the hospital, where she is on the waiting list for a heart transplant, on her high school graduation night, according to First Coast News. But nonprofit group Streetlight set up a five-camera stream of the ceremony, allowing her to see her classmates graduate. One sweet thing she noticed? They all wore hearts on their sleeves in her honor!

But the best part happened when Haberman’s name was called and her sister “walked” her across the stage on an iPad. When her sister turned the iPad to the audience, they were all standing up.

“Taylor, we want you to know that we all wish you the best,”  the principal told her.

    Oh my gosh this so sweet! She should never have to miss out on the important thing that she worked hard for and she didn’t! Congrats Taylor!
