American musician, actor, director, screenwriter, producer and reality television personality, Bret Michaels, to pay the bill to send a young fan to summer camp. The ‘Poison’ lead singer has shown a different sign of him, he will be helping out the young girl.
Kennah Hebert who is now eleven years old, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three years ago and earlier this month (Feb12) she wrote a letter to Michaels asking if she could attend a charity walk in her native Roanoke, Pennsylvania to help raise money for research Carilion’s Camp Too Sweet, a summer programme for children suffering with diabetes.
A representative for the rocker tells local news station 10 On Your Side,
”Bret wants children to know that they are not alone. He wants kids to create friendships with other children living with diabetes.
“Bret remembers his parents sacrificing to give him opportunities, and staying true to his roots, he wants to help other hard working parents give their children living with diabetes the same opportunities he had. Knowing the seriousness of diabetes, added that it is hard enough being a kid these days, Bret wants to afford kids the opportunity to just be kids.”
And Hebert was shocked by the Celebrity Apprentice star’s kindness, adding,
”I would have to say thank you so much for making it happen.”
