Bret Michaels was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age six. He has balanced his rock and roll lifestyle with five insulin shots a day. There is a proposed California bill that would increase awareness for school children, and Bret fully supports this.

According to the Miami Herald the proposed bill says schools would offer more info on Type 1 diabetes by 2021. Descriptions of the disease, warning signs and the screening process for a diagnosis for grades K-12.
