    The story behind this photo:

    I went up to SUNY Cortland this weekend to see my cousin play football.  This game was particularly special because in the above photo, #34, John Stephens, was meeting Clara Boyle, the two-year-old cancer survivor who received his bone marrow donation.  Back in 2010 when John was visiting Cortland as a high school senior, he did a cheek swab for a charity with the unlikely chances that he would be a match for someone in need of a bone marrow sample.  After Clara was born with leukemia, John Stephens was found as a match for her, but they weren’t allowed to meet.  Yesterday, October 13th, 2012, they finally met, and above is what happened.

    Here’s the link to the original story on SUNY Cortland’s website.
