Steven Lee was able to graduate with his class at Rosemont High School Monday night, through Skype, an online videophone service.

Steven was miles away at UC San Francisco Medical Center, too sick to attend. But the technology allowed him to be there, even watch his mom walk on to the stage and accept his diploma.

"It was quite an experience especially being in the hospital and dealing with IT guys and dealing with my health as well," said Lee.

Steven even got to toss his cap in the air, at the same time as his classmates.
