'I Almost Didn't Make It': 32-year-old Milwaukee Coronavirus Survivor Meets Woman Who Donated Plasma For Her Treatment

Unique Edwards, a 32 year-old Milwaukee woman, came down with COVID-19 in June and ended up being hospitalized after developing serious symptoms. In the hospital she was treated with convalescent plasma therapy, a treatment that uses the antibodies of someone who has had the infection and developed an immune response. Her illness was serious and medical personnel let her know that it was the plasma that really helped her turn the corner on the illness. Four months later, she was able to meet the plasma donor whose donation may have saved her life. Edwards, a mother of three, said, “…Donation will definitely be in that process of bringing up my children and reminding them what it did for me and what it could do for someone else.”
