Brockton twins pledge to walk for diplomas
Born with cerebral palsy, sisters are determined to walk at their graduation
The Pires sisters are clear about what they like, and what they want out of life, and for the past four years the twins have lived to the fullest as students at Brockton High School. The 17-year-olds were born with cerebral palsy, and both are in wheelchairs. On June 1, instead of rolling across the stage to collect hard-earned diplomas, they say they plan to walk.
