Gab Valenciano, known to most as Gary V’s dancer son, is urging fellow COVID-19 survivors to donate their blood plasma to help others still fighting the virus.
Valenciano took to social media to air his plea, posting a photo of himself doing the same.
He wrote, “YOUR PLASMA CAN SAVE LIVES.”
Gab then revealed having contracted the virus November last year.
“It wasn’t severe in any way and I fully recovered by following all protocols and by the full support of my loved ones, even from afar. I never planned to post about it till today because right now, WE NEED HEROES…”
He added, “There is another way we can fight this virus; CONVALESCENT PLASMA DONATION. Plasma isn’t artificially created from a lab or by doctors, it is naturally created by YOU…
“Plasma is the liquid part of your blood which contains antibodies that keep your body working well and helps fight off deadly diseases. In this case, COVID-19. Once you contract the virus and recover from it, you now have antibodies in your blood which gives you the opportunity to be a hero and save lives,” Gab explained.
