Bret Michaels gets “flocked” by the diabetes dude
HollywoodNews.com: Bret Michaels has returned to his rocker status, but he’s still taking time to help out those in need.
He stopped by to hang out with Noah, the Diabetes Dude, after one of his concerts. Noah posted his recount of the event on his website stating,
Noah, The Diabetes Dude, and his sister Dana flocked rock star and Celebrity Apprentice Bret Michaels with Darwin, the diabetes flamingo, at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis Massachusetts 07/18/10. Noah was so excited when he found out he was going to meet Mr. Michaels and decided he wanted to flock him with Darwin! Darwin, the diabetes flamingo, was named after a very good friend of the family’s superstar (or at least he thinks he is) cat, also named Darwin! Noah, himself, was treated like a rock star when we arrived at the tent! He was so excited to watch the concert and he and Dana had a great time! Mr. Michaels certainly puts on a great concert! There were a lot of people waiting to meet with Mr. Michaels when the concert was over and Noah was quite tired by then as it was way past his bedtime! Mom and dad prepared him that because it was late, he may not necessarily be able to talk with Mr. Michaels but we will do what we can to at least get Darwin to him. There were so many people waiting to see Mr. Michaels but the people in charge made sure everyone knew that “The Dude” was going first! People wanting to see Mr. Michaels were coming to Noah to ask what the flamingo was all about and wanted to touch the flamingo that was going to see Bret Michaels! We got “back stage” and members of the Bret Michaels Band kept coming over saying to Noah, “hey, you’re the flamingo Dude! We’ve heard all about you!” Noah and Dana finally had their moment! They walked up the steps of the tour bus and were greeted by none other that Mr. Bret Michaels himself! Noah was so exhausted at the point that he kind of forgot what he wanted to say to him so Mom had to help him out a bit. He told Bret about his campaign and his goal and gave him some special limited edition Silly Bandz for he and his daughters to help raise awareness. Mr. Michaels and his band were so excited about Noah’s campaign! Darwin is now officially on tour with Bret Michaels on the Roses and Thorns World Tour before he heads home with Bret Michaels to stay in his yard! Mr. Michaels is genuinely a very sincere guy. He spent way more time with Noah and Dana than we had ever expected, talking, signing autographs and then Mom and Dad had a few minutes to speak with him alone too. He really is a great guy. Noah was so happy to have met Mr. Michaels and is so excited that he is participating in his campaign and shares his moment of flocking with you below!
