INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis woman whose son contracted Ebola while working in Liberia says family members are praying for his recovery.
Dr. Kent Brantly is the medical director for the Ebola care center of the aid group Samaritan's Purse in the Liberian capital of Monrovia. Samaritan's Purse Vice President Ken Isaacs says Brantly is in stable and very serious condition.
His mother, Jan Brantly, says he had wanted to be a medical missionary from an early age. She says the Indianapolis Heritage Christian High School graduate began going on mission trips while young and has also worked in Uganda and Tanzania.
An Indiana University School of Medicine spokeswoman says Brantly graduated from there in 2009. She says Brantly performed humanitarian work while still in medical school, working with impoverished, inner-city residents.
