Troy Police Sergeant w/ COVID-19 Fighting For Life
While Troy police sergeant Randall French clings for his life at Albany Medical Center, his wife Danielle posted a plea on her facebook page begging people to donate plasma hoping someone can help her husband's fight. French has been battling for his life since being diagnosed with COVID-19. According to the Times Union, he entered Albany Medical Center about a week ago.
Danielle French, wife of Troy sergeant Randall French, desperately urged people to donate plasma to Albany Medical Center in a heartbreaking plea that outlined her husbands grave danger.
"We need help." she wrote. "My husband is currently fighting for his life, on a ventilator, in the ICU. He has Covid-19. We are scared and praying and trying our best to stay positive."
According to the Times Union, French was involved in an ATV accident about a week ago and was taken to Albany Med for what was believed to be a broken rib. According to the source, it was during that particular hospital visit where French was diagnosed with the coronavirus.
On her Facebook page, Danielle French referenced the experimental treatment currently authorized for use at AMC. The treatment involves taking plasma from individuals who have had COVID-19 and beaten it, and uses the plasma to treat current patients with the disease.
"We need anyone who has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus and has since recovered to please consider donating your plasma. This new treatment could save his life." French wrote.
For more information or to donate, you may call the helpline at AMC M-F 9-4:30 at 518 262-9340 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
