Best Friends Born With A 2% Chance Of Survival Have Just Graduated High School Together

Two friends who were both given just a 2% chance of survival at birth have overcome the odds and now aged 18 have just graduated high-school together.


Odin Frost and friend Jordan Granberry defied all expectations not only by surviving but by flourishing, despite their disabilities.


Both children suffered from a lack of oxygen when they were first born, causing brain damage and disability, and a low chance of long-term survival. Meeting on their first day of school, they have been close ever since, helping each other through thick and thin. By coincidence, the hospital where Jordan was treated was the exact same hospital where Odin was treated weeks later.


My son and his best friend, both told their survival rate would be around 2%, never walk, and live in a vegetative state if they made it past 7 years, both walked the stage and graduated tonight!!!

Odin's dad, Tim, said that when the two met at school, they became instant friends and were able to overcome the difficulties they had in verbal communication by using non-verbal signs. He said:


"Neither one of them could speak, but wherever the other one was, they were always together. When my son started walking and Jordan didn't, they had this connection still. My son would try to stand up and push Jordan's wheelchair and stand beside him at all times and sort of defended him."


I’m the dad of the boy who looks like Freddy Mercury. Haha. I’ve had over 1000 messages of people wanting to see him walk the stage so I thought I would link the video. Thank you all. You made this day way more special for my son. https://www.instagram.com/p/CCuPz4flRyV/?igshid=1og10wht2a0xg from r/MadeMeSmile

While they were not always in the same class, they remained inseparable friends and can now celebrate their graduation together after 15 years of friendship.


Tim shared a video of Odin's graduation day on his Instagram and shared his story on reddit, where it has gained thousands of readers who shared in their celebration.
