Moon's Sinatra Returns to Board after Battle with Cancer

Frank Sinatra returned to his role on the Moon Township Board of Supervisors Wednesday night after a months-long battle with pelvic cancer. 

Sinatra, who has missed meetings for much of the year as a result of his illness, said he is optimistic of his prognosis and has been looking forward to his return on the board. 

"Just hoping for the best," said Sinatra following Wednesday night's board meeting. "I had a scan today and I'm hoping everything comes back clean." 

Sinatra said he underwent 40 radiation and 14 treatments during his absense. He said he plans to return to work after the holidays. 

"This is a good way to phase back into things," Sinatra said. 

He said he received an outpouring of support from the community during his bout with the disease. The supervisor thanked residents during his remarks following the meeting.  

"Gift baskets, meals, cards, just everything" Sinatra said. "I never expected it. I feel good. I'm glad to be back."
