Lisa’s Story: Believing in herself

From Lisa about life’s challenges: “You have to believe in yourself, accept things you cannot change, and know what your mental and physical limits are. Believe me I know it is not easy, but you can do it if I did!”

Raising Awareness

Raising Awareness

These pictures below were take at the Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa. This was a very special concert because I had just started chemo for breast cancer a month earlier. My family and friends decided to go to the concert dressed like Bret so I wouldn’t feel out of place with no hair. We had shirts made that said ‘Bret’s Girls’ and on the back they said ‘Fight Like A Girl’. October is breast cancer awareness month and I…

Your Story: Edward Rodriguez

I met Bret Michaels by chance at the half marathon in Philadelphia on September 18, 2011.

I looked up to Bret for the courage it took to pick right back up from where he left off and continue his work after his hemorrhage. After our meeting, I started to learn…
