My name is Amber, I’m 25 years old and I wanted to share my story about the day I met Bret. On September 9, 2018, I had the privilege of meeting my hero, Bret Michaels, at the Indian Ranch. Bret has been a huge inspiration for me for well over a decade. Shortly after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 13, I discovered Bret. His music has gotten me through some of my darkest times, my loneliest hours, and the times I generally felt lost in life. I feel such a deep connection with him because I believe he is a man who has the same kind of heart as I do… he has a beautiful soul, empathy to help others, the drive to never give up, endless compassion, love, and shares the same amount of insane passion for music as I do. When I got the chance to meet Bret, we talked about our struggles with diabetes. He reminded me how important it is to have a positive outlook and mindset. You are such a beautiful man, inside and out, and you will always carry a piece of my heart. I will forever remember this moment we shared between us when I first met you! – Amber Miller
