Teen Battling Cancer Graduates Early

"Seniors, there will be times when you will be faced with situations out of your control. Don't let it harden your heart. Don't let it define who you are or prevent you from knowing your purpose in life."

These wise words came from a 17-year-old who is fighting for her life. Iris Marquez is battling cancer and she wanted to cross the stage and graduate high school while she is still feeling strong. So the school district and staff at Taylor High School in Texas held a special graduation ceremony to help make her dream come true. Marquez shared her words of wisdom with her classmates, and now they're going viral.

Stay strong, Iris. Keep fighting!
