TeamBretMichaels.com #UnbrokenFriday Story!

Dear Bret,

I wanted to share my “Unbroken” story with you but first wanted to tell you that YOU are truly my Unbroken and my true inspiration in life! The monumental acts of kindness and your beautiful soul have inspired and helped so many and I am so very grateful to you beyond words!

Over the last four years I have been diagnosed with Reactive Hypoglycemia, Pre-diabetes, Functional Neurological Disorder which affected my ability to walk as well and Fibromyalgia which causes extreme daily pain and fatigue.

However, I don’t let these things break me and when I feel down, your music and your concerts and meeting you numerous times is enough to keep me going strong and tough.  Your music makes me feel invincible, free and just does the heart good!

It’s been amazing that I have been able to learn to walk again and I shared my story with you in Tunica last year and was so grateful to be back on my feet!

After all you have been through in your life I know that I can beat all odds as well!

So thankful to be able to attend as many of your concerts as possible through the years and will be seeing you soon as well!  

I’m staying “Unbroken” all thanks to you!

Love you always and forever!

Shelley

TeamBretMichaels.com Featured Story!

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

Jen Gage, GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix Founder Calls Bret Michaels A Class Act & Generous

“Bret is truly a class act! Generous, Accepting and KIND. Letting the kids join him onstage for the entire set and taking the time to meet and talk with each one of them was above and beyond anyone’s expectations. Bret is truly compassionate about helping others. I so appreciate how involved he was with our participants and families.  They were grinning from ear to ear and still are. Truly magical and the whole room felt it! He embodies GiGi’s mission to change outdated perceptions of Down syndrome, break down barriers to participation and foster inclusion for all. GiGi’s Phoenix is so grateful to Bret for his huge heart and loving spirit and amazing energy. In just 15 minutes Bret created memories that changed the attending children’s lives and created memories that will last forever for everyone who attended.”

Addy’s Disneyland Journey

Addy’s Disneyland Journey

Addy’s Disneyland Journey

In summer 2018 Bret Michaels met an amazing little girl from Idaho named Addy Berria along with her Mother, Ashley and family backstage during a meet & greet. During their conversation Bret was inspired by Addy’s spirit and personality, so much that he offered to cover the associated costs sending Addy and her family to Disneyland.

Through his Life Rocks Foundation, Bret’s commitment by giving back to communities in which he performs runs deep. Meeting genuine people like Addy and her family are truly at the core of what Life Rocks is all about.

After weeks of planning between Michaels’ team and Ashley, including a “Don’t Do What Bretty Rocks Does” charity video seen here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BoPoQCKBbhw/, arranging flights for the 5 family members, hotel, car service etc. the family was set to head west from Idaho to California in search of Mickey Mouse and an awesome time.

Below are photos sent from Ashley from their trip. From airport to airplane, from hotel to Disneyland and back on behalf of Bret and all at MEGI/Life Rocks Foundation, we are glad you had a great time Addy!

Bret Michaels’ Life Rocks Foundation Collaborates With Team Carly Rocks Sending 15 Children To Diabetes Summer Camp

Bret Michaels’ Life Rocks Foundation Collaborates With Team Carly Rocks Sending 15 Children To Diabetes Summer Camp

On special occasions Bret Michaels’ Life Foundation collaborates with other charitable organizations to benefit individuals, families and causes. While backstage at a recent tour stop Mitch and Carly, a father and daughter diabetic pair met fellow diabetic Bret Michaels. Bret and Mitch discussed bringing their foundations together for this instance which resulted in funding to send 15 children to diabetes summer camp at Camp Ho Mita Koda located in Ohio.

As a lifelong Type 1 juvenile diabetic since the age of 6, Bret formed his Life Rocks Foundation out of necessity and a desire to give back to children and communities. In addition, Bret’s Life Rocks Foundation also works with organizations benefiting veterans, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and many others with instant impact and real results rather than taking a knee. Bret is about really doing something about it.

Each year Bret sends children to diabetes summer camp which focuses on learning how to manage diabetes while having fun and developing new friendships. Bret remains a focal point in helping to raise diabetes awareness. “Diabetes is the reason I fought so hard to win Celebrity Apprentice” said Michaels referencing his victory on the highest rated season of the show’s existence. “Collaborating Life Rocks with Team Carly Rocks to send 15 children to camp is an awesome day.”

In addition, Michaels works closely with the American Diabetes Association and JDRF having served as keynote speaker at numerous gala events which helped to raise millions of dollars for the cause.

Bret Michaels Contributes To Operation Welcome Home Benefiting Military Heroes

As the son of a veteran, Bret Michaels continues his longstanding commitment in support of our nation’s brave service men/women and first responders. Each night during shows on his record breaking “Party Starts Now” tour Michaels honors local heroes by bringing them onstage to pay tribute. In addition through his Life Rocks Foundation, each night Bret also makes monetary contributions to local charities across the country. While performing to a record crowd in Morgantown, West Virginia, Michaels met Tim Wolfe from “Operation Welcome Home”. Tim’s organization helps place veterans with jobs and assists with other needs as they return home. On this night, Bret donated a portion of proceeds from a live auction of his custom cowboy hat and stage worn shirt taking place from the stage and at the merchandise booth.

Family Thanks Bret Michaels For Sending Their Son, Kyle To Diabetes Summer Camp.

Family Thanks Bret Michaels For Sending Their Son, Kyle To Diabetes Summer Camp.

My story of meeting Bret Michaels is a bit of an emotional one. I begin to write this with my son’s freshly autographed JDRF bandana next to my right hand, and a Kleenex next to my left hand because the last 24 hours have been unbelievable for our family!

On May 15th, 2015, our son, Kyle, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It was the worst day of my entire life. My husband was working out of town and I was at home (eight months pregnant) with our three children. When our pediatrician came back in with the urinalysis results and told us he was arranging for us to be immediately transported to TC Thompson Children’s Hospital, I thought I was going to lose my son. Thankfully, we received wonderful care in the hospital and my son made a recovery from the horrible shape he was in at the time.

We began researching Type 1 Diabetes and learned that several celebrities live with this disease. One of course being….THE AMAZING BRET MICHAELS!! We kept telling Kyle, “Hey, look at this awesome rock star! He has Type 1 Diabetes like you do and he has done so many awesome things in his life!”

When I found out that Bret was coming to our hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, I knew I had to at least try to see if I could arrange for Kyle to meet him. I figured it was a long shot at best and nothing would ever come of it. Much to my surprise, I received a response almost instantly that we could absolutely meet Bret! This news came on Kyle’s 9th birthday, so we announced to him at his birthday dinner that he was going to meet Bret Michaels. He didn’t believe us at first, which was okay because I was having a hard time believing it myself.

Last night…IT HAPPENED! Mark took our son up to meet Bret. Even though I was right behind Kyle, I couldn’t hear what Bret was telling him. When my husband and I joined in, Bret told us that he was sending Kyle to diabetes camp!! I guess we must have had a deer in the headlights look about us, because he had to repeat it! I don’t think you can put into words what we were feeling at this moment.

This was not just a meet and greet for our family…. It was truly a life changing moment! Bret’s kind words of encouragement to Kyle, as well as his generosity shows just how wonderful of a man he really is! I know we must have been monopolizing his time, but he never made us feel like he was rushing us out of there. He really took the time to talk with us about Type 1, answer our questions, as well as share some of his own personal struggles/triumphs that he has faced with this disease. More importantly, he made us feel like family. For the first time in three years, we finally felt like we weren’t alone in this fight!

We walked back to our seats, and I sat there for a few minutes before the show started just bawling my eyes out. Bret made my son feel like anything is possible and told him that this disease should not and WILL NOT EVER HOLD HIM BACK! Sure, Kyle hears that all the time from us, but when it comes from the ONE AND ONLY BRET MICHAELS…. YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!

Thank you, Bret, for giving our little guy SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN!!

I have attached the picture from our meet and greet with Bret. Thank you for taking the time to read this! I know it was long and I apologize. My heart is so full today and we owe everything to Bret and his amazing team!! THANK YOU!! – Amy Pruett
