“A lot of people out there supported him over the years,” his mother said.
Brandon always will have to watch for cancer’s return, but he is approaching five years of being cancer free.
“It just would have been nice to see him walk,” she said. “It’s a shame.”
Brandon did get a different kind of graduation experience this spring.
He was presented a laptop through the Childhood Cancer Lifeline of New Hampshire organization at a brunch last month.
“That was amazing,” his mother said.
Brandon said he would walk with classmates, should administrators reconsider, but he doubts that will happen.
His mother expects Brandon will put this behind him, despite the disappointment.
“He’s been through many struggles,” she said.
Brandon plans to go to graduation, even though he won’t walk with his classmates.
“I’m going to go because a bunch of my friends are graduating,” he said. “I want to be there for them.”
