Story – Mika Fights Illness Looks To Bret’s Music For Inspiration.  

I am 35 years old and have had two major illnesses that have impacted my life. I have Cystic Fibrosis and due to that I am also diabetic. I have dealt with these two illnesses my whole life, what saves me is my family and Bret’s music. Music has always been a part of my life. My Dad was in a band and still is in Illinois. He has always played rock and I know so many of those songs by heart. Music has helped me to relax and to cope with so many life changing ostacles in my life. 

Bret Michaels is one of my favorite artists and it continues to help me cope! Thank you Bret for all your support and donations to JDRF. My pump has saved my lift and makes life so much easier!
