chimpanzee attack

Travis the Chimp mauled its owner's friend, Charla Nash, in Stamford, Connecticut.

The woman who was severely mauled by a chimp in Connecticut has a reason to be proud Thursday.

Her daughter is graduating from high school in Stamford.

Charla Nash will not be present at Westhill's graduation ceremony, according to a family spokesman.

She did not want to take the attention away from the graduates. She is at a Boston hospital, being evaluated for a face transplant.

Nash was attacked by her friend's 200-pound chimp Travis last year.
