Two Men in the News. One is a Hero.

By | April 30, 2013

This week the media is all aflutter over the idea that one obscure basketball player has admitted he is gay. Jason Collins, the little used center for the Washington Wizards decided the world needs to know his sexual orientation. Prior to this announcement the season averaging 1.1 point bench player was a relative unknown to most. A cynical person might even question if this coming out was a political move meant to help job security. Still, this story skyrocketed through all the news outlets and its popularity even garnered Collins a phone call from the president.

A second news story actually happened weeks ago but has barely made it to major news. In this story, a college senior shot putter freely and willingly gave up the most important meet cameron lyleof his career.

Why?

To give a life-saving bone marrow donation to a complete stranger. It’s sad that you haven’t heard about Cameron Lyle from the University of New Hampshire.

When Lyle realized that medical procedure would end his sports career he stated matter-of-factly, “It’s just a sport. Life is much more important than that. So it was pretty easy.”

The man who needs his help is said to have only six months to live without the lifesaving marrow implant.

Two stories. One getting all kinds of press. One receiving little. But one is a true hero.

Share the name of a true hero: Cameron Lyle.

    This story is racist and homophobic if you believe Cameron Lyle is the true hero.
