In July 2014, Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol received a death sentence. They were medical missionaries—Kent with international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse and Nancy with SIM—working in ELWA Hospital in Liberia. As they fought a surging epidemic of the killer virus Ebola, a crisis the world largely ignored, Kent and Nancy caught the disease themselves.

The team at Samaritan’s Purse worked around the clock toward the only hope for Brantly and Writebol. It was something that had never been done—evacuate the Ebola patients to the U.S. for treatment and cure.
