Md. teen who had special ceremony for dying mother officially graduates

Posted: Updated:
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. - A Maryland high school senior who had a special graduation ceremony at her dying mother's bedside last month officially received her diploma on Tuesday.  Megan Sugg walked across the stage at the Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro along with the rest of the Glen Burnie High School Class of 2014-- no doubt, with her mom on her mind.  

Back in May, Megan knew that her mom, Darlene, who was terminally ill with colon cancer, didn't have much time.  So, her high school put together a bedside ceremony so that her mom could be there for her special moment.  Megan wore her cap and gown, and her mom looked on with pride. 



A few days later, on Saturday, May 10, Darlene Sugg lost her battle.  But the night before, she got to see Megan go off to prom, dressed in a beautiful peach prom dress.  The family took photos of Megan at her mom's side. 



Her sister, Diane D'Aurora-Schreiber, tells FOX 5 Darlene "said she would be going" on Saturday-- and she did.  That was also the day before Mother's Day, and Megan held a candlelight vigil for her mom in their driveway that night.



Darlene was 47 when she passed away, but she was diagnosed at 44.  Her sister tells FOX 5 the cancer was stage 4 right from the start.
