For years Adam Clouse has been a faithful blood donor. “I gave last week for the 27th time.” But these days what’s in his blood is even more important for saving lives. “I tested positive for COVID-19 in mid-August.” Adam lost his sense of smell & taste for a while, but really wasn’t hit all that hard by the virus. But his COVID experience is now proving very valuable for others. “So, what the plasma does, is it has antibodies and so when folks come into a hospital setting, they will give them my antibodies with blood to fight off the virus.” 

Every time Adam donates plasma, it helps 4 people – and so far, 16 people in the Dayton, Ohio area have been blessed by Adam’s willingness to continue donating. Adam, an active Christian, says that taking an hour of his time to donate is no bother – and well worth it to help others. 

Adam is a 2010 graduate of Cedarville University with degrees in finance and business management. He began his donation streak in Ohio during his time as a Cedarville student. 

We invite you to listen to our encouraging interview with Adam Clouse (below) and you’ll sense his enthusiasm for helping others as he explains the plasma donation process.
