My name is Tricia. I have been a fan of Bret Michaels since he started. In March of 2000 I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. I was having a difficult time coming to terms with everything. In June of 2000 I was lucky enough to meet Bret backstage in Toronto,ON Canada. We got to talking about Diabetes and I told him that I had just recently been diagnosed. He had so many encouraging things to say and told me he would make a deal with me, every time he came to town he wanted to check up with me to see how things were going. Bret is truly an inspiration and a wonderful human! Thank you again for everything you have done for me, and the things you do for everyone.
