Supporting Steph

Not a great photo, but it's me and Steph Yakley.
Some current news. My fourth cousin Stephanie Yakley is currently battling ovarian cancer. She was in the hospital and undergoing chemo, but has now returned home. Here's a Facebook page if you'd like to send her some good wishes.

Steph and I share great-great-great-grandparents John Abraham Shanower (1814-1859) and Mary "Polly" Roush Shanower (1820-1896).

A benevolent fund has been set up at First Merit Bank for Steph. Due to chemo and the effects of the cancer, she has been unable to work since July. If you'd like to make a donation, no matter how small, you may do it at any First Merit Bank location, or you can mail a check to: First Merit Bank, 201 West 3rd St., Dover, OH 44622.  Write "Stephanie Yakley Benevolent Fund" on the memo line.

Any support, moral or monetary, will be appreciated.
