Standing with Jenny

Three days ago my cousin, my friend's life was changed forever. Driving down highway 54, heading home for round two of the birthday celebration she planned and prepared for her oldest of three, she was in an accident. Sparing her daughter and her friends from injury, Jenny was the only one hurt. She now faces the reality of paralysis, no doubt a reality difficult to accept. As a mother of three, ages 9, 4, and 2, and a wife, this is a terrifying reality. You start to wonder how you can possibly step back into those roles where you left off three days ago. The daunting truth of what you can no longer do blinds you from what's most important - that you're still here - that every day you can still feel their embrace, see the smiles on their faces, and hear their "I love yous". If anyone can take on this challenge, it's Jenny. She awes me with her strength, faith, compassion and determination. But this challenge will not be easy. She needs all her family and friends to stand with her as she makes the necessary changes in her life, the life of her family, and her home. I ask that you open your hearts, take a moment, and Stand with Jenny.

Today marks the one month anniversary of Jenny's accident. In the past month there have been very long days filled with pain and uncertainty as well as many days guided by hope, strength, love, and faith. Thankfully the good days have outweighed the bad. Jenny has made huge strides in her therapy and is growing stronger and more independent with each and every day. The kids are getting used to Mom's new look and Ben is managing the house renovations and the kids' schedules well. Things are starting to come together as Jen gets closer and closer to her release date from the hospital. Much work needs to be done yet for Jen to return to her home with her family. Please continue your support for the Nazes. They need you just as much now as before. Continue to pray as well as share Jen's story with friends and strangers alike - you never know who she will inspire next or how they may be able to assist in bringing Jen home. Share the link; share Jen's journey.

A message from Jenny - "Happy Saturday! I've had a great week, worked through the pain to make great progress in this journey!!! Get to wash my hair today for real rather than the shower cap thing!! Thank you to every single person who is praying, loving, and supporting me and my family, it is an honor, humbling and oh so motivating!! I look forward to the day where I can personally than you, pay it forward, and share my story... Love you all!!! 1 down 3 weeks to go! Much!! Xoxo."
Jenny is doing great, as she said. Her positive spirit is nothing but inspiring! As Jenny stated, in 3 weeks she will be able to leave the hospital. Ben and the family have just those 3 weeks to get the addition and other renovations to the house completed. If the house isn't fully accessible to Jenny at that time she will not be able to go home & instead will be placed in a nursing home. The estimated costs for medical expenses, the addition, and other necessary renovations is in the ballpark of $90,000. Please continue to keep Jen and her family in your thoughts and share their story by sharing their link. The more people we can reach the more we can assure Jen will be home in 3 weeks, where she should be...
