We got an update from one of our patients in Nicaragua, Jose Salomon Agurcia, and his son Juan Agurcia Rivas. We met Jose in May 2016 in Managua where he underwent bilateral knee surgery. Below is a letter he wanted to share about his progress. Pictured is Jose and his surgeon, Dr. Audley Mackel and one our dedicated volunteers, Carolyn Miller.
