Rocker Bret Michaels shares that he worries about his daughter Raine, 10, living a normal life with her diabetes, from which he also suffers.
“We are doing everything we can to support her in leading a normal, healthy, active life. I’m trying to be a good role model for her.
“What I want to do is to show her day in, day out, that diabetes doesn’t have to deter her from her dreams. And if she ever feels like she can’t do something because of her diabetes, that’s when I’ll feel like I’ve let her down.”
He says that the disease has taught him how precious life is.
“It requires a lot of diligence and a lot of determination on my part, but I never lose sight of the people and the things that inspire me to live a long a life.
“Surrounding myself with my family, my music, and my fans – that’s what helps me keep my health in check because it reminds me how much I want to be here and it pushes me to take care of myself.”
