It was just a few weeks ago that a young nurse in Dallas contracted the deadly Ebola virus. Now 13 days after testing positive, Nina Pham has been declared free of the deadly virus.
"I feel fortunate and blessed to be standing here today," she said. "Throughout this ordeal, I have put my faith in God and my medical team."
Before she went home, she met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

The governors of New York and New Jersey announced a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning from West Africa who had direct contact with an Ebola patient.
This comes as Dr. Craig Spencer, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in New York City, is now in stable condition. His fiancée and two other friends are all under quarantine.
Officials are now tracing all of Spencer's movements since he returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea.

A doctor who recently returned from Guinea has tested positive for Ebola - the first case of the deadly virus in New York City and the fourth diagnosed in the United States.
The doctor, identified as Craig Spencer, 33, came back from treating Ebola patients in Guinea on October 17 and developed a fever, nausea, pain and fatigue Thursday. He is isolated in stable condition at New York's Bellevue Hospital Center, one of the eight hospitals statewide that New York Gov.
Spencer, who is in intensive care, went for a jog, may have gone to a restaurant, traveled the city's subway system and went bowling before feeling ill, but authorities sought to assure an anxious public that the likelihood of him spreading the virus was low.
"We want to state at the outset there is no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed," Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters late Thursday.
There's no question Spencer was heroic - he traveled to west Africa to treat Ebola patients. But many people are outraged that he traveled around the most populated city in America when he was feeling "sluggish."
As a doctor, should he have known better?
Miguel Marquez has the report.
A case of Ebola has made its way to New York City.
A 33-year-old American physician who returned from working in the Ebola hot zone in West Africa about 10 days ago is now in isolation at Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital.
He was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning with a 103-degree fever, nausea, pain and fatigue. Of major concern: an official tells CNN the doctor was out in public last night, taking an Uber cab to a bowling alley in Brooklyn.
The doctor appears to have followed CDC guidelines, which state travelers from West Africa self-monitor for Ebola symptoms, but in this case, after directly treating Ebola patients, should he have been forced to self-quarantine?
The case raises further questions about whether the U.S. is doing enough to stamp out epidemics. Can the U.S., for instance, learn anything from China's draconian measures?

The family of Amber Vinson, the second Dallas nurse to contract Ebola, have hired a high-profile defense attorney.
They say it is "untrue and hurtful" that Vinson ignored the agency's protocols and put others at risk by taking commercial flights between Dallas and Cleveland.
They insist that Vinson did everything properly:
-Consulting Texas health officials and the CDC repeatedly throughout her trip
-Clearing her flight to Cleveland with hospital and CDC officials.
-Asking if she should fly back to Dallas
Vinson also spoke with Texas health officials and asked if she should fly back to Dallas immediately after learning her colleague had Ebola. She was told that was unnecessary.
Still, the next day she decided to fly back, calling health officials three separate times to report her temperature, and was cleared to fly each time.
