Michaels says, “Diabetes is one of our country’s leading killers and is the number one cause of heart failure, kidney failure, blindness and more. As an active type 1 diabetic we must do everything we can to stop this epidemic.”

Bret is a passionate fighter in the Stop Diabetes movement. In addition to sharing his story, he is participating in this season of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” His efforts have raised $140,000 for the American Diabetes Association so far. We are grateful for his efforts and wish him a speedy recovery from his recent illness.

In related news, reports that Bret Michaels continues to make a strong recovery since suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage last month, and Donald Trump, Bret’s boss on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” told Access Hollywood that the rocker is hoping to make it to the season finale.

“What he’s done is amazing,” Donald told Access Hollywood’s Tony Potts earlier this week. “He had, essentially, an explosion in his brain and he’s really doing better. He’s having a little bit of a difficult time, but he’s really doing better and I know one thing, I don’t know if it’s going to happen, but he wants to be — in two weeks — on the finale of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ He wants to be there.”

Fans of the show know that Bret is actually still in the competition, which finished filming weeks ago, having thus far managed to survive several boardroom sessions. Also competing for the top prize of being crowned “The Celebrity Apprentice” is Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson-Peete, Maria Kanelis and Curtis Stone.

Donald said he wasn’t surprised that Bret is doing so well in coming back from his hemorrhage as he realized early on how determined Brett was while filming the challenges on the NBC show.

“He’s a real fighter,” Donald said. “He turned out to be a real fighter. I wasn’t sure about Bret when I first met him. I wasn’t sure. People had different thoughts. He’s turned out to be a highly competitive guy who everyone liked.”

“The Celebrity Apprentice” airs on Sundays at 9 PM on NBC.
