Through the Be The Match bone marrow donor registry drive, they are donating bone marrow for the life-saving treatment for people with leukemia, lymphoma and many other types of diseases and blood disorders.Philippi, a sophomore from Coto de Caza, California, was honored by the Ivy League for a key interception in last Saturdays win at Brown, and then he learned this week hes been found to be a match after participating in Penns bone marrow registry in March. He will donate bone marrow to a 30-year-old leukemia patient in early December once the Quakers season ends.God gave me this opportunity to help a person that I dont even know, Philippi told the Philadelphia Daily News. But its not just affecting him. Its affecting his family and the people around him. I cant let them down. Its a blessing. Its not something Im worried about (doing). Whatever I might have to go through, its nothing compared to what theyre dealing with. Its a chance Im willing to take.Howerton, a senior from Asheville, North Carolina, registered during a drive at Wofford in the spring. Doctors discovered he was a match, and he anonymously donated bone marrow on Monday -- the same day he was honored by the Southern Conference for blocking a punt and recovering it in the end zone for a touchdown in last Saturdays win over Mercer.It was a long process, but I knew that I was doing the right thing, Howerton said. (Missing games) was an easy decision to make when you consider how much you can help another person. I am sacrificing a little bit to help a person who is going through a fight for their life. I appreciate my teammates, coaches and family for their support during this process.The Be The Match registry includes the Get in the Game initiative that was started by Villanova coach Andy Talley, whose foundation has since partnered with over 50 other schools to register more than 61,000 potential donors.
