Karin Huster traveled to Liberia earlier this year to help combat Ebola.

Marcie Sillman speaks with Seattle nurse Karin Huster, who is getting on a plane this weekend to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone. She previously was providing care in Liberia. As she prepared for this trip, Huster said the hardest part about leaving is not knowing what will happen. The Record will be following Huster's journey. She will be in Sierra Leone until December.
