Melissa Vargas tuberculosis

Melissa Vargas, 23, a mother of two, came down with multi-drug resistant TB last year. Soon after beginning treatment, she lost her will to live. But thanks to continuing treatment and the actions of a nurse, Ruth Espinoza, she has regained her health and now is thinking of going back to school.
