Shantel (Dan) Dow MEDICAL FUND

Shantel Dow was diagnosed with stage 3 Rectal Cancer on September 11th, 2014. What has followed has been a whirlwind of daily radiation and chemotherapy treatments , Dr. visits, exhaustion, side effects, fear. and finally this last Thursday, tumor removal surgery-for which she is still hospitalized. Through it all, Shantel has maintained a positive outlook and a smile on her face, even though the stress and "unknowns" were almost unbearable at times.

Due to her daily treatments and the exhaustion that went with them, Shantel was forced to take a 12 week unpaid leave of absence from her position as Exectutive Director of Chariton Area Chamber main Street and Lucas County Development Corporation. She has also had to curtail much of her DOW ARTISTS business until her strength, stamina, and overall health outlook gets back to normal. This has put tremendous financial strain on the Dow family at a time when medical bills are mounting!

There is no one who is is more willing to put herself out there for others than Shantel Dow. Please consider making a monetary donation to her GoFundMe account to help offset some of the burden. This is a time for giving, for friends and family, and for helping the ones we love. Thanks you so much for your support!!
