Doctors told Bryan Fazio in February that he had nine months to live. The news motivated the 26-year-old former naval petty officer to load up on course work to make sure he completed the Brandman University MBA program he had begun in February 2010, after being diagnosed with cancer.

Although Fazio walked with his class at graduation in May, he will officially complete the MBA program in August. The school has set up a scholarship in his honor for veterans with medical issues who wish to pursue their education.
