College Athlete Gives up Shot Put Career in Order to Donate Bone Marrow
By Good News NetworkTuesday, April 23, 2013
Like the rest of the University of New Hampshire track and field team, Cameron Lyle, 21, joined the bone marrow registry in his sophomore year. After all, it was a one in 5 million chance of ending up a match for a non-family member.
Then, a few weeks ago, the shot put star learned he was an exact match for a 28-year-old man on his last fight against leukemia.
He is now being called a hero after agreeing to quit his final athletic season so he can give the gift of life to an unnamed stranger who had just six months to live.

A tiger briefly escaped at the Shrine Circus in Salina, Kan., on Saturday night.
No one was injured, but the tiger did give a woman a fright when the two found themselves face-to-furry-face in the ladies’ room.
According to the Salina Journal, Jenna Krehbiel had just finished watching the big cat show when she excused herself to visit the restroom. Around that same time, one of the cats managed to escape and wandered into the restroom ahead of her.
“I went in to use the bathroom, and a lady came in to get her daughter out and said there was a tiger loose,” Krehbiel told the Salina Journal. “I didn’t know it was in the bathroom, and I walked in the (open) door, which closed right after I had walked in. I saw the tiger; it was at most two feet in front of me, and I turned around calmly and walked back toward the door. Someone opened the door and said, ‘Get out.'”
And get out Krehbiel did. But she was sure to do so calmly, an instinct that she credited to her training as a social worker. “I’m always on alert, and it was easy to walk out. That’s how I am trained,” she said. “Looking back, it was a scary ordeal. At the time, I was thinking I just needed to get out.”
Scary for her, but her 3-year-old daughter remained gloriously in the dark as to the seriousness of the situation. “My daughter wanted to know if it had washed its hands,” she told the Salina Journal. “That was her only concern. I think that shows the thoughts of children and that they wouldn’t have known there was danger.”
