College athlete ends career to donate bone marrow

University of New Hampshire senior Cameron Lyle is giving up the final two weeks of his track and field career to help save the life of a man he’s never met.

Lyle, a thrower, is scheduled to donate bone marrow on Wednesday to a 28-year-old man suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The surgery will limit his activities for weeks, meaning he won’t be able to throw shot put, discus or the hammer at the final two meets of his career.
