A rare form of cancer left her bedridden and fighting to stay alive. 

"It was awful," Vest told KHOU News.  "She's like my mom, so it was the worst thing ever."

So, the school decided to bring the graduation to the ailing grandma.
 
"I told them I could get some things together, a diploma and be over within an hour," said Assistant Principal Mark Ruffin.

Vest fulfilled his grandmother's dying wish by receiving his diploma in front of his grandmother in her hospital room. 

"I had the biggest smile on my face. It was amazing," Vest said. "She saw me in the cap and gown, and she was staring at us, and she knew what was happening. That was the best part. She knew what was going on."

Grandma used all her strength to show her grandson that she was proud of him.

"She had enough energy to clap and say congratulations and everything," Vest said. "For this to happen, it was a miracle." (Screengrab via KHOU.com)

Just three days later, she died. 

"It was all she wanted before she passed, it was everything to her," Vest said.

The principal said it wasn't a request he heard every day but he's glad he got to be a part of fulfilling her dying wish. 

"It was not a call that we get every day. It caught me off guard. The gravity of the situation hits you when you hang up the phone and realize what other people are dealing with," Ruffin said. 

"For the time that we were there, it wasn't about the illness," he continued. "It wasn't about the sadness. It was about Vest and that moment for him and his grandma."
