Bret Michaels - Bret Michaels Foots The Bill To Send Young Fan To Summer Camp

Poison frontman Bret Michaels has shown off his softer side by sending one young girl to summer camp.
Kennah Hebert, 11, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three years ago and earlier this month (Feb12) she wrote a letter to Michaels asking if he would attend a charity walk in her native Roanoke, Pennsylvania to help raise money for research.
Fellow diabetic Michaels was quick to respond, letting Hebert know he would try to clear his schedule for the event and offered to pay for the young girl to attend 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."
