Forestry Student Battles Cancer

Posted: November 20, 2012

Penn State Forestry student, Colin Grube is receiving treatment for bone cancer.

Colin, age 21, was set to return to Penn State University Park this fall, when doctors diagnosed Ewing Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer in his femur and sacrum.  Colin's attitude remains positive and he plans to continue his studies in the College of Agricultural Sciences when he has recovered.  His treatments are received at Geisinger in Danville and recovery continues at home near Dallas, Pennsylvania.  Updates on his condition are posted on Caring for Colin Facebook.  Supporters may purchase Colin's Crew bracelets for a $1.00 donation, in 113 Forest Resources Building at Park and Bigler.
