California Cancer Patient With Amnesia Identified by Sister

A woman with amnesia who has been undergoing cancer treatments since she was found semiconscious in Southern California has been identified by her sister as Ashley Manetta, 53. An NBC affiliate in San Diego reported Manetta turned to social media in a bid to rekindle her memory and find her family, writing "I pray my family will be found soon." NBC 7 said its report about "Sam," as she was only known by then, was seen by Manetta's nephew, who telephoned his mother and told her the mystery woman was his aunt, Ashley.
