Title of Collection
Scope and Content Note
Contains a number of awards that Dr. Brantly and his wife received, letters sent to the Brantly's during and following his recovery from Ebola, a Liberian flag, pictures, a portrait, and magazines.
The following biographical note is excerpted from heritagechristian.net:“Brantly, his wife, Amber and their two small children moved to Monrovia, Liberia in October of 2013, working as medical missionaries on a two-year assignment with Samaritan’s Purse. Brantly treated patients in the general clinic and in the Ebola treatment center, where he and the team followed strict international codes to avoid contamination. As the number of Ebola patients increased steadily over the next two months, Brantly took on the role of medical director for the Samaritan’s Purse Ebola Consolidated Case Management Center. On July 23, he woke up feeling under the weather and his condition declined rapidly. He was diagnosed with Ebola Virus Disease. In the nine days that followed his grim diagnosis, he grew sicker and weaker from the disease. Through the care of the missionary team, a plasma donation from a 14-year old survivor whom Brantly had treated and a dose of the experimental drug, ZMapp, his condition improved. He was airlifted to Emory University Hospital, where he made a complete and miraculous recovery.”
