Teen Surprises Terminally Ill Dad with His Last Dying Wish

For students, graduation is often both a time of hardship and celebration, where friendships and memories are sure to be left behind, but new beginnings are just around the corner.

Though it’s a time for both parents and students to feel proud, for one high school graduate, in particular, the ceremony was about more than just himself.

Oak Harbor High School student Darien Borowski was expected to walk across the stage in May, before all of his peers and family members. However, his father, Terry Borowski, wasn’t expected to make it to that date because he was terminally ill.
