Fourth months after COVID-19 wreaked havoc on me and my family, nearly taking my Dad from us, I looked forward to donating my antibody-rich plasma to help others suffering from this horrible virus.

Dad turns 75 this September, so to commemorate his KICKING COVID IN THE DONUTS, I’m hoping to get 75 people to pledge a donation before the end of September. Let’s all celebrate with a mountain of Boston Creme when we’re on the other side of this…
