Michael is a healthy 54-year-old father of three. After contracting COVID-19, he ended up in the hospital and was on life support for 23 days. At that point, his doctors obtained convalescent COVID-19 plasma, donated by COVID-19 survivor Leonard Seiple.

Four days after receiving the plasma, Michael was able to breathe on his own for 10 minutes; three days later, he was taken off the ventilator. Read more here.
