Me & Bret Michaels lending a helping hand from the destruction of the Pilger Nebraska tornado. Seeing pictures was one thing, but to actually be there helping and seeing the tragedy was a whole different experience.

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Lane Attends Diabetes Summer Camp For The 1st Time!

Bret, Patrick and the Life Rocks Foundation,

My son Lane was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 08-2011. I had requested that his doctor order the lab work because he was showing many signs of this disease as I knew of the because my younger sister is a type 1. As soon as the blood work came back we were off to Riley’s Children Hospital in Indianapolis. Lane had only went to his first two days of kindergarten before being admitted to the hospital. I knew all about camp and knew he could not got until he was 8 years old. However his dad had been injured at work and we were having a hard time keeping up with everything let alone paying for camp. I have always loved Bret’s music and the charity work he does so I found the link to apply. With in just a few short hours Patrick called accepting the application. At that point all my son wanted was to see Bret and shake his hand I bought tickets to the July 12 2014 show in Danville, IN and with the help of people around us and Lane’s poster we made he got close to the stage and shook Bret’s hand!! This means more to all of us than you will ever know as Lane has been struggling with feeling like he is “the only one” with the issues he has and camp will show him he is not alone. More to come after camp I am sure he will have lots to talk about after just this first year!

Again thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for sending Lane to camp Bret!

Samantha, Timmy and Lane

TeamBretMichaels.com Feel Good Friday Story

With all the stories in the news as of late that are of sadness and tragedy, we thought we’d end the week on a high note with an uplifting, positive story of our friend Johnny Kocisko and his mother Linda who brought pizzas to victims and workers affected by recent storms and tornadoes this past week.

Great job Johnny and Linda!

TeamBretMichaels.com Story

Dear Bret,

First I want to say that myself and my daughter are sooo happy that you are feeling better and pray that you stay that way! I just wanted to write this because although I am not diabetic or have or had cancer, I have lost my mother to breast and bone cancer 29 years ago and my Aunt to diabetic complications 2 years ago, I know what it is to be the caregiver to two people I loved the most in my life ! If only there were the charities and scientific improvements then for cancer, my Mom would still be here! I just wanted to thank you so much for all you do for both causes and your NEVER-ENDING support to those that need you the most! We love you, respect you and admire you for being the most beautiful soul that you are! Looking forward to seeing you soon in New York on July 14th and the 18th!

With All Our Love Always,

Jackie & JoMarie

Bret Michaels and The Life Rocks Foundation sponsored Hannah this year to attend diabetes summer camp. She had an absolute awesome time. She got to meet Nascar driver Ryan Reed there and many new friends as well as got to see her friends from years past. As you can see she did the rock wall, giant swing, high rope course and archery. We can not thank Bret and the foundation enough for sending Hannah to camp this year.

Best wishes
Eric and Kristina Fletcher
