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.
