You may be aware that there is a general need for Plasma, but have you seen their faces, have you read their stories?

I was exposed mid March, unfortunately I exposed my family. My 93 year old Mother who I live with, my son and my daughter who was our caregiver while Mom and I were ill. Fortunately none of us had to be hospitalized and that was a blessing in itself. I was inspired by my daughter she had already donated and if I can help one person to recover it's worth it. I am healthy and hope to continue donating.

I had Covid back in early February, before we knew it was in New England. I'm one of the lucky ones-I had what I thought was the worst, strangest cold ever but was able to recover even after losing my sense of taste and smell for months. I tested positive for antibodies May 7. In March, my 92 year old aunt was diagnosed with the virus. She was hospitalized and on a ventilator. She fought to survive and made it to a rehab facility. Unfortunately, she had a stroke and we lost her 2 weeks ago. So, I have donated my plasma in her honor in hope that I can help others defeat this horrid virus

Positive COVID test on 4/13. Started with my first symptoms on 4/11 with loss of taste & smell, sweating profusely for 1.5 weeks, stomach problems for 3.5 weeks & testing positive again on day 31! I finally got a negative test on day 46! Although I still suffer from various weird symptoms including smell & taste being distorted, I was finally approved to donate my plasma full of antibodies!
