ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, Ill. - Maj. Katherine Williams, U.S. Army Sustainment Command, and Mike Lux, U.S. Joint Munitions Command, meet with Patty, a COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma donor, at Mississippi River Valley Regional Blood Center in Davenport, Iowa. Patty never tested positive for COVID-19 but was very sick before April and thought she might have had it. After losing her father to COVID-19, she decided to get antibody testing. Testing revealed not only that Patty had the antibodies, but also that concentrations were high enough to make her a prime candidate for CCP donations. Ever since finding out she could help out others, she has been donating CCP to honor her late father. (Photo courtesy of Mike Lux, JMC)
