Must Watch! SO Inspiring! 11 Year Old Ebola Patient Dances His Way to Recovery



11 year old Mamadee is inspiration that no matter what you’re going through, a positive attitude can change your outlook and the outcome of your situation.

Liberian Mamadee was a confirmed Ebola patient who used to dance in the camp, making everyone happy. A few weeks after being admitted, he recovered.

His sister, who was admitted with him, unfortunately passed away.

Here’s the write-up from the YouTube video, posted by international humanitarian org of doctors around the world Doctors Without Borders, 

“In the area for Ebola-confirmed patients in the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Case Management Center in Foya, Liberia, roughly two-thirds of patients don’t survive the Ebola virus. The patients receiving treatment gather on wooden benches and plastic chairs if they have the strength. Other patients can only lie in bed while their immune systems try to fight the deadly virus in their bodies.

Mamadee, 11 years old, is different. As the other patients watch, he performs a dance to Azonto, a type of music that originated in Ghana, on the radio. 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.”

    He did it. Against all odds! Nothing indeed last forever, so dance the pain away. It could be bad or even worst but he didn’t give heed to his condition.
    Very soon, news will be that iyanya kukere can cure ebola!

      Sometimes it is not really a warning… Sometimes its along the lines of “Hush baby, don’t you cry. I took care of Mamadee. I’ll take care of you.

      I know right? Why must Nigerians transfer their vindictive culture onto a loving God?
      Our pastors and preachers tell us that’s who God is but how about we know God for ourselves???

    Wow I really tried to hold back the tears.. I pray he dances through life even when he experiences challenging times, that he never forgets to dance.

    When God is in control, we can dance while he takes off burdens xx

    I am no medical personnel but somehow this boy’s case and Nurse Justina’s fiancee got me thinking.

    Is it possible that good old exercise can actually boost your immune system against this virus? I mean if it is done regularly before the virus weighs you down; because that guy also kept on doing his push-ups et al.


    September 23, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    May he have reasons to dance for the rest of his life. I’m touched.

    That’s why the Holy Bible says “Rejoice in the Lord Always”. and “Give thanks in everything”. for the good, the bad and the best times. Easier said than done, YES. But its the sensible thing to do. Worry brings no solace.
