About two-thirds of Ebola patients don’t survive the virus, but 11-year-old Mamadee did. The organization Doctors Without Borders caught up with the boy at their Case Management Center in Liberia to tell his story. They even captured a special moment with Mamadee, recording him dance to “Kukere,” a song by Nigerian artist Iyanya. From Doctors Without Borders:

He jumps, he ducks, he steps to the side, first left, then right, then left, then right, jumps again, turns, swings his hips and shakes his arms. He doesn’t stop, and he doesn’t get tired. It is difficult to believe, but Mamadee is an Ebola-confirmed patient.
