Anthony made the selfless decision to sign up to donate his bone marrow through Penn’s “Be The Match” program. While studying for finals in April of 2019, he found out he was a match with a leukemia patient and he arranged to donate his bone marrow over the summer during a break from football.

As Anthony prepared for his bone marrow transplant, he was also recovering from a severe shoulder injury. His plan was to return to the field, but the injury was too severe and resulted in nerve damage that ended his football playing career.

He’s still part of the Quakers team, serving as a student assistant coach and sending in defensive signals.
