Help John Shimmel and family

John Shimmel was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident on Friday, Sept 8th.  He is an employee at Penn State OPP and a devoted son, brother and uncle. Without going into too many details, he will have a long road to recovery.  
His  Mom Bea and sister Julie will undoubtably be making lots of trips to Pittsburgh where he is currently being treated.  We would like to raise money to help them with their expenses so they can be with him to help him through this trying time.  Any level of support is helpful.  Thank you!
