As a COVID-19 survivor, you have the chance to be a hero for those in the Dayton area suffering from the effects of the illness. Give your antibody-rich COVID convalescent plasma (CCP) through the Community Blood Center and it will be used to help critically ill Coronavirus patients heal.

You've got a lot of fight in you.

Current research into the use of CCP suggests it is a safe and effective therapy that reduces the length and severity of COVID-19 illness. There are multiple for-profit plasma centers in the Miami Valley that use plasma donations for research and development purposes. 

As a non-profit blood center, Community Blood Center's CCP donations are transfused directly to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients in the Dayton area.

How CCP is used

“I feel like if I can help somebody then that’s one less person who might die from it. I mean this is essentially like a fight. We have to fight back, and convalescent plasma is one of the fighting mechanisms.”

You can be a hero to critically ill COVID-19 patients. Donate CCP and help make more survivors just like you.
