We hope you'll join Early Returns in huzzahs for Kevin Evanto, who has returned full-time to the courthouse after a six-month battle with cancer.
The 41-year-old communications director for Allegheny County and executive Dan Onorato was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July 2010, which spread into his abdomen and lungs. After 12 weeks of chemotherapy and two surgeries, he returned to work full-time today.
From a note he issued:
I am thrilled to report that my chemotherapy treatments and surgeries were successful. Therefore, I am resuming my responsibilities as primary media contact and spokesperson for Allegheny County effective immediately.
Please join me in thanking Megan Dardanell for the tremendous job she did during the past several weeks.
I also want to thank all of you for your support and well-wishes during this challenging time in my life.
