College Athlete Gives Up Career To Save A Life
What would you do to save a person's life? Meet Cameron Lyle, a Division I track and field college athlete who decided to risk his college career to save a life.
Cameron discovered he was a perfect bone marrow match for a 28-year-old patient suffering from lymphoblastic leukemia. Cameron knew what he had to do when he found out the patient only had 6 months live.
"It's just a sport," he said. "Just because it's Division I college level doesn't make it any more important. Life is a lot more important than that, so it was pretty easy. It was kind of a no-brainer for a decent human," Lyle said. "I couldn't imagine just waiting. He could have been waiting for years for a match. I'd hope that someone would donate to me if I needed it."
Cameron decided to donate his bone marrow to save this other person's life. Unfortunately, donating his marrow would end his college athletic career, but Cameron knows saving a life is more important! What an incredible person. We wish you all the best, Cameron!
