Jennifer Engelhardt-Parales Team Jen

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Jennifer, is a mother of 2 a military wife, kind heart, with a beautiful soul. One thing is for sure her kids are the light of the life,  Her not being able to play, run, and keep up with their normal activities is defiantly a struggle now. She was a perfectly healthy young woman. She has inspiration that goes with out recognition. She is a wife, daughter, sister, cousin and best friend. She is defiantly not the type of girl to let anything get into her way. When she was told her was in acute kidney failure after not even realizing she was sick, our hearts sank. No one deserves young or old to be told if we do not put you on the kidney transplant list and get you on dialysis you will die! 

My sister Jennifer has already been through so much in her life, her fathers death, both grandparents dieing, and now to find this out.. its crazy. 
Jen is truly and inspiration to me, with a heart of gold. Now do not get me wrong we have not always agreed on things, We have gone through periods of not talking. The fact of the matter though is she is the only sister that I have and will ever have, watching her go through this tears me up inside, I tell you if I could switch places with her I would, so that she could play with her kids, take them to school, live her life normal. 

I have created this page so that whom ever near or far wants to share some memories, laughs, tears, or just support is able to do so. Let Jennifer know that you are thinking about her, let her know that she is not alone, let her know how loved she is. Right now more than ever is the time she needs it. 

RIght now she is on the kidney transplant list because she is in Stage 5 Kidney Failure under going 3-4 times a week of being on dialysis. Never in our wildest dreams did we think this would happen to her. Love you my sister. Always and Forever! Thank you for showing us what it looks like to be stronger than we will ever know. I look up to you.
