A California teen paralyzed nearly all his life lived up to his big promise this week and walked on stage to accept his high school diploma.

For the last three years, 17-year-old Patrick Ivison of San Diego has been going through intensive training for Tuesday’s ceremony, enduring six hours per day of physical therapy, according to KGTV in San Diego.

He vowed to everyone he knew that he was going to walk on stage during commencement.

"There's always that like, oh, I've got, you know, all of America expecting me to get through this," Ivison told KGTV.
