Event Description

This event already happened.  Now you can watch the video!

 

Scott Benner is a stay-at-home father, a diabetes advocate, and a keen observer of the human condition. He has spent the last twelve years raising his two children at their family home in New Jersey.

Scott shares his triumphs and challenges in parenting a child with type 1 diabetes on ArdensDay.com, an inspirational blog for parents and caregivers of children with diabetes. His first book, Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal, is a perfect blend of Scott’s passion for parenting, his knack for positivity in the face of adversity, and his exceptional skill at spinning a yarn.

Scott finds wisdom, love, and a deeper understanding of life by paying close attention to the pauses in between the moments that make up our lives. He enjoys those pauses—and the busy times that intervene—with his wife Kelly, son Cole, and daughter Arden.

A question for Scott : How did you keep Arden's pump on during your vacation? As the summer started we have been at the pools everyday and Kelsey (6 years)is loosing pods by the day, by the time I realize she is in the upper 300's we both got very frustrated and now we are back on MDI at the moment. She asked me to wait till she is back in school to start back the pump. I did everything Mastisol, wrapping it and tegerderm. We just started on the Omnipod and Dexcom in April.
