Six American Ebola survivor met for the first time as a group Wednesday on “Today,” discussing their unusual bond and sharing their experiences with the virus. Many thanked Dr. Kent Brantly, one of the first survivors to recover who went on to donate his plasma to most of the others as they recuperated. “He’s a selfless man and he’s like our angel and gave us a second chance at life, that’s how I feel,” said Texas nurse Nina Pham. All the survivors said they had no regrets about the choices they made, whether serving abroad in West Africa or treating Ebola-stricken patients in the United States. “I’m thankful for God’s grace and the second chance and the opportunity just to continue to serve, possibly back in Liberia," Missionary Nancy Writebol said.
