Remembering Aril Bryant
Honesdale’s Lady Hornets made sure one of their own would be remembered when they made a donation in Aril Bryant’s name to help others fight the disease that claimed her young life, breast cancer. The high school basketball team donated a portion of funds raised from their annual Think Pink Game, $2076, to the Wayne Memorial Women’s Imaging Center. The Imaging Center offers digital mammogram screenings, which, according to the American Cancer Society can often find breast cancer at an early stage, when treatment is most likely to be successful. Aril Bryant was a bright light on the Honesdale basketball scene who went on to play varsity hoops at Muhlenberg College. She passed away in 2013 at the age of 30. The Lady Hornets dedicated this year’s game against Scranton Prep to “Shootin’ for the Cure.” Wayne Memorial Health Foundation, which accepted the check from Friends of Honesdale Girls Basketball, thanked the ladies for their hard work and thoughtfulness.
