The Today Show’s online health website shared the story of 21-year-old Cameron Lyle, who ended his University of New Hampshire track career early to donate bone marrow to a stranger. Two years after joining the Be The Match Registry, Lyle was called as a matching donor. Taking seriously the commitment to save a life, Lyle didn’t think twice about donating. Though donation curtailed Lyle’s track season, Dr. Jeffery Chell, CEO of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) and Be The Match, explained that most people return to normal daily activities within days after donation.
