Texas Doctor with Ebola Turns Down Serum So Fellow Worker Could Have It


The Star-Telegram in Fort Worth, Texas reported that Doctor Kent Brantly contracted the Ebola virus in West Africa but turned down an experimental serum and asked that it instead by given to another sick mission worker, a post Thursday on the Samaritan’s Purse website says. Reverend Franklin Graham, the President of Samaritan’s Purse said, “However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola because of Dr. Brantly’s care. The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor that saved his life.”
