Tanya & Hunter Thank Bret For Sending To Diabetes Summer Camp! – TeamBretMichaels.com

Bret –

We would like to thank you so much for sending Hunter to Camp Planet D. He had a blast and we are so grateful that he had the opportunity to experience such an amazing camp with people who live with the same disease he battles daily. He had a blast entertaining the camp with his back flips! He is ready to go back next year and is planning on becoming a counselor when he is too old to go.

Thanks so much.

Tanya (Hunter’s mom)

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Cole Thanks Bret For Sending Him To Diabetes Summer Camp!

Bret,

I wanted to send this email to you as a huge thank you for sponsoring my son Cole with his first experience at diabetes camp. Not just first experience, he has never even spent a night away from home. Every night I still get up and test his sugar a least 2 times a night because he doesn’t feel his night time lows. This was a big step for both of us!  

I dropped him off yesterday with tears and pick him up Friday. I know he will have the time of his life thanks to you Bret. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving him this opportunity! 

All the best and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Cole and Chrissi

Bret,

Thank you so much for sending Cora to American Diabetes Association Camp this year. She has been living with Type 1 Diabetes since she was 4 years old. She is a very strong, caring and extremely responsible young lady who manages her diabetes daily and lives life to the fullest. Here is a picture of her with a “Thank You Bret” sign she made. Thanks to the Life Rocks Foundation for all you do and thanks to Bret Michaels for being such a wonderful inspiration and role model for those living with Type 1! This is a year she’ll never forget!

This is a picture of me holding my “Thanks Bret!” sign me I made at Camp Endres. I had an awesome time at diabetes summer camp. Without the help of Bret’s Life Rocks Foundation sending me, I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy it. 

Thank you Bret so much!

Marissa Returns From Diabetes Summer Camp, Gives Thanks To Bret

Marissa Returns From Diabetes Summer Camp, Gives Thanks To Bret

Marissa Loved Diabetes Camp!

Thank you so much, Bret, for sending our daughter Marissa to diabetes camp at Camp Soles! She just got home today. She had a wonderful week at camp. They spent their time swimming, canoeing, climbing the rock wall, learning archery and making friends. She especially loved the dance party and when her team won first at the “Mock Rock” dance contest. She learned to do her own insulin pump sites this week also! We are so proud of her. We are so happy she was able to spend a week at a place where she fit in and checking her blood and taking insulin was “normal”. The memories & friendships she made will last a lifetime. 

Marissa is 11 and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes almost 3 years ago. She doesn’t let diabetes hold her back from doing anything! We want to thank you not only for sending her to camp, but also for showing her that you can still ROCK with diabetes. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! 

Love, 

Kelly, Rich & Marissa

Bret with ADA Chicago reps Sue Apsey and Mallory Dahlquist

A few of our friends from the American Diabetes Association of Chicago were on hand Saturday night to watch Bret rock Frankfort, IL and shared their thoughts with us…

Bret Michaels is an amazing man, he is warm, generous and understanding of the hardships of having diabetes. By providing scholarships and sending children to summer camp, Bret offers youth with diabetes an opportunity of a lifetime to learn more about managing their disease and meet others with the same condition so they do not feel so alone. We are so grateful for his commitment to helping these campers thrive and grow as individuals as well as diabetics.

**********

We had a great time at the concert Saturday night. Lisa Testolin was so appreciative of the opportunity. As a mom of a Life Rocks Foundation scholarship recipient to send her child to camp, she felt honored to be able to meet Bret.

For Mallory, a Bret fan and so connected through the ADA, this was really special. Again, so many thanks for providing all of us with the chance to attend the concert and especially to meet with Bret. The concert was a great one and Bret is so warm and engaging to talk with.
