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

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

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Type 1 Diabetic Daughter Is Her Mom’s Hero

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Type 1 Diabetic Daughter Is Her Mom’s Hero

This is a story I know Bret can relate to! My daughter Genavie is 13 years old and is a type 1 diabetic for 5 years now and we all know the struggles of diabetes at such a young age even at older ages. But nothing stops Genavie she feels she was blessed by God with this disease to see how strong she can be in life. If you ask her if she wants a new pancreas she will flat out tell you NO. She never showed an ounce of fear since the day she was diagnosed. My daughter has become my hero she has showed me that she is stronger then me and most adults taking in diabetes like its a blessing. Genavie attends Camp Victory every year. I know Bret is aware of that camp :-). Last year she was made camper of the year because she is so caring she went around helping the other kids. One of the things Genavie does to deal with the stresses of her diabetes is sing, her dream is to one day become famous so she can be a hero for other diabetics her age and let them know just because they are diabetic that does not mean they can’t concur their dreams. Another thing she plans if ever famous is to donate and do a lot of charity for diabetes she has always had a big heart she chose to raise money in school one year and donated it to JDRF. She makes me proud everyday. Genavie has an amazing singing voice.

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Bret Sends Hailey To Diabetes Summer Camp

Dear Team Bret:

We took Hailey to Camp Needlepoint yesterday, all thanks to you!! This was her first year at camp, and she was SO excited (and a little nervous). She is having a blast in her Windjammers Group, learning to sail and making new friends! I am so grateful to Bret and his team for making this happen! We will send more pics when she returns on Saturday.

Bret, you are an inspiration to all of us. You teach compassion, generosity, kindness, and just a joy for life. Thank you!!

Julie
(Hailey’s mom)

TeamBretMichaels.com Story: Paige Rocks Diabetes Camp

I thought you guys might like to read an update I just wrote on Paige. She is having an AWESOME time, absolutely LOVES camp and is learning to take care of herself. She has learned to paddleboard and also learned fishing! She even kicked the teenagers’ rears, coming in second place at archery. We are so proud of her. Paige dressed up as Professor Snape from Harry Potter and you can see her, all in black, in some of the line dancing pictures. She also made a new best friend, Katie.

Thanks again to Bret Michaels and the Life Rocks Foundation for sending Paige to camp!
