The liver transplant was the second for 15 year-old Jarrius Robertson, who has biliary atresia; a liver disease that slows growth in kids. JJ is a feisty fighter, and a nationally recognized South Louisiana sports star for the Saints AND the awesome jump shot in basketball, as he showed at the NBA All Star Week!
JJ is progressing well. He is up drinking juice, taking medicine by mouth! Hopefully he will get to move around more soon - Jordy— Jarrius Robertson (@Jarrius) May 4, 2017
