Twin Battling Cancer Graduates From High School
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) —
A set of identical twins will graduate from Duncan Poly Tech High School Wednesday evening.

Mark Guajardo says, "Keep going never give up and just believe in yourself."
Mark's brother Mathew says, "I'm proud that he is going to graduate with his class and all his friends."
