Nina Pham, a Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola after treating Liberian national Thomas Duncan in Texas, said she believes in the power of prayer, after she was declared virus-free and released from a Maryland hospital Friday. She also met President Obama at the White House, and received a hug.
“I first and foremost would like to thank God, my family and friends. Throughout this ordeal I have put my trust in God and my medical team,” Pham said at a briefing about her treatment outside the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Md., Friday.
“I believe in the power of prayer because I know so many people all over the world have been praying for me,” she added, according to USA Today. “Although I no longer have Ebola, I know that it may be a while before I have my strength back.”
She said she feels “fortunate and blessed.” She added, however, that the experience was “stressful and challenging” for her and her family.
