Bone Marrow Donation

Junior offensive lineman Matt Greenhalgh completed a bone marrow donation on April 11 at the Rhode Island Blood Center in Providence. His donation will help save a leukemia patient’s life. Since head coach Joe Trainer’s arrival at URI in 2009, the Rams have hosted an annual bone marrow drive in support of the National Marrow Donor Program. On March 17, Greenhalgh was notified of his status as a perfect match with a patient. Through the Marrow Program’s privacy policy, Greenhalgh, a two-time CAA Football All-Academic Team honoree, is able to have anonymous written contact with his marrow recipient.
