A 6-year-old kindergartner was given a special moving up ceremony while recovering at Blythdale Children's Hospital in Valhalla.
Joey Federico, of Cornwall, graduated kindergarten Friday with a virtual ceremony. Federico suffered a traumatic brain injury following an aneurysm and has been a patient at Blythdale for the past two years. 
"These accomplishments are things we didn't know we would ever see again and the fact that we have them is unfathomable," says Ann Federico, Joey's mom.
Despite his ongoing treatment, News 12 is told that Federico is now well enough to start school with his hometown friends in Cornwall in September.
