26 and already had two liver transplants

 Union City resident is a fighter

Rene Rodriguez is the definition of a fighter. A young 26, he was discharged from University Hospital in Newark on Aug. 13 after receiving his second liver transplant.

Aside from being a little thin at his discharge with only 124 pounds on his 6’1” frame, Rodriguez – who gave an interview in his Union City home last week – was all hope with a witty, intelligent sense of humor, and big, smiling eyes. One would never guess he’d been in and out of hospitals fighting the complications of Hepatitis B since birth.
