Glen to miss Penn State’s next three games to donate bone marrow

Penn State sophomore forward David Glen will undergo a bone marrow donation procedure after learning he was a match through Be The Match, a national marrow donation program.

The Nittany Lions’ assistant captain participated in the Be The Match-facilitated Match4Kim Drive, which was held in support of Penn State men’s lacrosse player Drew Roper’s mother in November 2012.

Glen will begin the peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donation process Friday, Jan. 24, when he travels to Geisinger-Bloomsburg (Pa.) Hospital.

It is not known who will receive the donation.

As a result of this selfless act, Glen will miss Penn State’s next games against Boston College (Jan. 25) and Ohio State (Jan. 31, Feb. 1).

So far this season, Glen has appeared in 18 games, contributing two goals and three assists.
