HHS Basketball Games Benefit WMH Patients
(Honesdale, March 16, 2022)…The Honesdale High School Hornets boys and girls basketball teams came together once again to help others in the community diagnosed with cancer. The ‘Shooting for a Cure’ games this winter raised money to purchase six Fire HD tablet computers with customized covers for patients at Wayne Memorial Hospital’s (WMH) Chemotherapy and Infusion Clinic. With the electronic devices they can listen to music, play games, read, and more while receiving treatments at the hospital.
The athletes organized basket raffles at each of the boys and girls games to buy the hand-held computers and covers, and donate an additional $50 to the clinic. “It’s a wonderful thing,” said oncology nurse Karen Quigley, RN. “We really appreciate it and so do the patients.” This has been on the wish list for Wayne Memorial’s oncology team. “The young people in our communities are amazing,” said WMH Community Health Manager Carol Kneier MS, RD, LDN, CDCES. “They do so much good for others.”
