Hemet high school teenager battling leukemia makes his dream come true of graduating

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (KABC) — The Class of 2022 at Hemet High School took a moment Tuesday to celebrate one of their graduate students, Adan Munoz, during a special recognition of applause. That’s because Munoz had to miss his final year of high school fighting for his life in the hospital.

“He did everything to be here. He fought his way through and fought and overcame some battles,” said Mariela Munoz, Adan’s mother.

Adan, 17, started the first fight last year when he ended up in hospital with back pain.

“From then on, just in the hospital, doing a lot of tests, not knowing what’s going on with me, just in constant fear of what’s going to happen to me,” Adan Munoz said.

He was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia. After one of his chemo sessions, he contracted an infection and ended up in an induced coma.

“Seeing my son fight for his life every day was very, very difficult,” said Mariel Munoz.

But no matter how difficult things got, he persevered and got back to his schoolwork because his dream was to make it to graduation. Thanks to the help of his friends, family, teachers, nurses and his football team, he made it to graduation.

“It’s a great day. It’s a fantastic day. I’m so happy to be here with the whole Class of 2022,” said Adan Munoz.
