Jennifer Swenson, a valued employee, has inspired CRES to take an interest in the National Kidney Foundation. Jennifer not only devotes her time, but she remarkably donated her kidney to her brother when he was diagnosed with kidney disease.
Jennifer and her father were both tested and both matched, but she bravely decided she would be the one to give her kidney. She was 21 years old when they had the transplant surgery. Jennifer was by her brother’s side through is recovery, taking him to his appointments and quitting her job to be full-time support for him. Her brother can now live a full life because of her sacrifice. CRES is proud to stand behind Jenn and her family in raising funds for this important cause.
