Scott witnessed firsthand the integrity and power of hospice care through relationships with friends he'd met during his year-long cancer battle. This struck even closer to home when his father was diagnosed and received home hospice.

The delicate balance of humor, humanity, expression of self, along with top notch medical care enabled his family to let his father's death to be one of dignity and comfort. Those tools, not coincidently, are the same tools Scott used in his own fight - and the tools we all need in our everyday lives to cope with daily and lifelong trials.

Scott gives grace, honor and a healthy dose of laughter to hospice organizations nationwide. He is the perfect break in the day, an ideal focus refresher and a potent keynote to send participants home laughing and feeling good about their work.
