Penn State's David Glen to Miss Time for Bone Marrow Donation

Penn State's David Glen will donate bone marrow after being found a match.

Penn State sophomore forward and alternate captain David Glen will miss Penn State's game on Saturday against Boston College, as well as next weekend's Big Ten series against Ohio State, but will be doing so for a great reason.

Glen signed up for the Be The Match bone marrow registry in November 2012 as part of a campus-wide drive in support of the mother of a Penn State lacrosse player. Glen was found to be a match for an unknown person in need of bone marrow, and will begin undergoing the procedure for bone marrow donation on Friday.

The procedure usually involves a recovery time of seven to 10 days, meaning Glen will miss Penn State's next three games, but it's a choice well worth it for what is potentially a live-saving procedure for a person in need.
