SC Foundation Director Jen Crouse Perseveres

Our very own Executive Director, Jen Crouse was in the news this week.  Sheridan Press reporter Ryan Patterson wrote an article about Jen’s journey after her car accident at age 16 in which she was paralyzed from her chest down.

SHERIDAN — Jen Crouse wanted to speak but physically couldn’t. She was 16 years old and laying in a hospital bed as a result of a nearly fatal car crash that paralyzed her from the chest down. Crouse was on life support and listening to a physician tell her parents that they should take her off life support.

“I could still hear my mother’s cry as I watched her place her face in her hands,” Crouse wrote in her book, “Proof God Hears Your Prayers.” “I had no way to tell them I was alert and could understand every word. I wanted to beg them not to give up on me, but I could not make a sound.”
