Although he won’t receive the experimental serum since only one dose is available, Dr. Brantly will receive a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy that he helped save. “The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor that saved his life,” said Franklin Graham, the President of Samaritan’s Purse, in a statement.
