As a nurse and paramedic, Amanda Solt, is used to being the one on the frontline helping to patients in need in her community. However, the tables turned for her when she became ill with coronavirus. In a matter of a week, Mrs. Solt’s health went from bad to worse causing her to be rushed to the intensive care unit (ICU). Amanda received what she credits as her lifesaving plasma. She said, “I feel it in my heart of hearts that it’s because of the plasma and I am so humbled that someone had donated. Saying thank you feels so minuscule, how do you say thank you for a second chance?”
