Do you Shannon take Jim

Scott Benner


Since the inception of Arden’s Day I’ve asked you to take what you learn here and pass it on.  I believe that understanding breeds concern, that it gives birth to new advocates and that those things are paramount for people with type 1.  With every new person that understands the disease... Arden’s life gets easier.


Arden’s Aunt Shannon and her husband Jim stepped up as they have in the past (last year Jim printed our walk shirts for us at no charge) to bring much needed attention to type I diabetes.  Jim and Shannon were married on October 30, 2009 and in lieu of those little mints wrapped in fish net they made a donation to the JDRF in Arden’s name.  They generously donated two dollars per wedding guest to Arden’s 2009 JDRF walk and inside of every thank you card that they sent was this message, “Thank you for being a part of our day.  We have made a donation in your name to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  This is in honor of our niece Arden, and the countless others who suffer with diabetes every day.”


We can’t thank them enough for coming up with this fantastic idea.  If you are visiting the site for the first time using the web address on your Jim and Shannon wedding refrigerator magnet, welcome!  We hope that you come back often and pass what your learn here on to a friend.

I can honestly say this brought a tear to my eye, it brought several actually. To see a family who so strongly support eachother, and to recognize the difficulties in diabetes to provoke them to do all they can about it, is truly amazing.
You should be very proud of your entire family.
Lots of love.
