He said, "There are still a few hurdles to clear before I can be discharged, but I hold on to the hope of a sweet reunion with my wife, children and family in the near future."

"Thank you for your prayers for Nancy and me," Brantly said in the statement. "Please continue to pray for and bring attention to those suffering in the ongoing Ebola crisis in West Africa."

According to a story carried on NBC's Dallas Fort Worth news station, Brantly, who was volunteering with the charity Samaritan's Purse in Liberia amid the worst-ever outbreak of the deadly virus, has been improving steadily after being treated with an experimental drug earlier this month.

Brantly remained hospitalized Friday at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. His comments came in a statement issued through Samaritan's Purse, which is headed up by Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist, Billy Graham.

Brantly added in his statement, "Thank you for your prayers for Nancy and me. Please continue to pray for and bring attention to those suffering in the ongoing Ebola crisis in West Africa. Their fight is far from over."

The website stated that The JPS Foundation is now accepting donations for Brantly and his family, who lost all of their earthly possessions when he contracted the Ebola virus and was returned to the United States for treatment. After his symptoms appeared, Brantly was isolated and was never able to return to their home. According to JPS, everything is considered contaminated by Ebola and will be destroyed.

"No date has been announced for his release from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, but when he is well enough to join his family, they will face the challenge of replacing everything from household items and clothing to computers and children's toys," said JPS in a statement Friday. "All funds will be held in a separate account within the JPS Foundation for the financial support of Dr. Brantly and his family during his recovery.
