Kathy Shelton has been at the Manor Care, 715 Central Rd., Arlington Heights, IL 60005 since July 29, 2017 for complication after surgery for cancer. The family requests that she not have visitors or calls but does encourage friends to send Get Well wishes at the above address. I just received information that she is improving but there is no projected date as to when she will be released to go home.
