On January 24th, Poison frontman Bret Michaels went in to surgery to repair a hole in his heart, while his fans got busy showing him some love.
During the time Bret was in surgery, there was a huge influx of donations to one of his favorite charities, the American Diabetes Association, leading him to release a statement through his rep.
“Bret would like to send out a big thank you to all those who donated to the ADA,” his rep told Hollywood Life. “He is extremely appreciative of this incredible support.”
Bret was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of six, and has spent much of his time raising funds and awareness for that cause, among many others, such as feeding the hungry with the help of the charity rock CAN roll.
Bret is currently participating in TwitChange’s second auction, along with Eva Longoria, Shaquille O'Neal, Reba McEntire, Tom Arnold and over 100 other celebrities. Funds raised from that auction will benefit the soldiers’ support charity Operation Once in a Lifetime.
