Dear Bret,

My daughter Mikayla was able to attend diabetes summer camp due to your generous scholarship from the Bret Michaels Foundations. Diagnosed at 6, Mikayla is almost 9 and dealing with Type I diabetes on a daily basis. She is extremely happy at diabetes camp where she is “like the rest”, feels safe and can be the active and energetic near 9 year old you see in the pictures. I also volunteer as a Registered Dietitian for the week at camp and I love overseeing snacks and lunches for over 50 kids!!! I would love to devote my profession to teaching type I kids about managing the diabetes through nutrition! It’s all about the diet, isn’t it? But funding is difficult to come by.
