Dr. Kent Brantly With His Family

Dr. Kent Brantly, an American doctor who is suffering from Ebola in Liberia, has bravely given up a serum in an attempt to save his colleague Nancy Writebol.  Dr. Brantly was in Liberia on a missionary trip when the Ebola oubtreak began, and he was soon battling for his life.

Charity organization Samaritan’s Purse managed to get a serum sent to Liberia for Dr. Brantly, but since it was only enough for one person, he declined so that his fellow aid worker, who was also battling the horrific disease, could be treated.  His health has since gone “taken a slight turn for the worse” overnight, while Writebol is in stable but serious condition.
