Long wait for Berthony

Months ago we wrote about Berthony, a 30 year old man with staghorn calcified kidneys. Dr. Mark has talked to a surgeon in western Massachusetts who is willing to do the necessary surgery and a local hospital is agreeing to donate services. But we have had one stumbling block after another with trying to get his birth certificate. The earthquake complicated things when records were lost but it seems that his true last name is different than what he's been using his whole life. Amoce has  made several trips to Port Au Prince to try to get it straightened out. Today he and Berthony traveled on the bus with the team and spent more time in PAP. Hoping that he will have a passport soon. Hoping that the money we spent today will produce results.
