KELLER, TX (WFAA/CNN) – It was a big day for one Texas teen on Friday night.
Kareem Gibbs celebrated his graduation on Friday with family and friends before taking part in homecoming at his high school.
The crowned homecoming king tried to give Gibbs the crown, but he turned it down.
No one could tell by his big smile and cool demeanor that Gibbs is dying from a rare form of cancer.
Gibbs told his classmates at a graduation made just for him that "life is a story, however you write it is the way it happens."
