Nina Pham is the first person known to contract Ebola while in the U.S. Her family confirmed Monday that the 26-year-old nurse and graduate of Texas Christian University is the mystery person we heard about over the weekend. Pham is being treated at the same Dallas hospital where she cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient to die in the U.S. Officials have saved Pham's Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Bentley, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Monday. For now, the small dog remains in Pham's apartment and is under the care of Dallas Animal Services.
