The more we hear about Bret Michaels, the more we like — we think he's a genuinely nice guy who wants to help and repay favors.

For instance, take the fact that Bret just invested in a new room for patients and their families at the Phoenix hospital where he was treated for a brain hemorrhage.

How's that for a thank you??

Bret Michaels Gets The Flu And Has To Cancel On Charity Gig

Bret Michaels Flu

Oh no!

Bret Michaels got super dehydrated and sick with the flu and had to cancel on a charity gig that he was doing. We love that he does his best to reach out and help with his charity gigs, but we're glad he decided to rest instead of push it.

The Poison frontman was expected to make an appearance at the XSport Fitness Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon and perform for competitors at the end of the race, but he had to bow out of the event early on Sunday.

"Not only feeling bad physically, but also feeling bummed about missing the show today in Chicago. Such great fans!…"

We, like the rest of those at the Marathon, hope you have a speedy recovery!

How Bret Michaels Keeps That Six-Pack

Just by looking at this picture, you would never know that a year ago, Bret Michaels suffered from a brain hemorrhage and underwent heart surgery 7 months ago.

Clearly, this guy's a fighter and he's working hard to stay fit and healthy, EVEN when he's on the road.

It's no easy work though. Bret explains his fitness regimen to get that smokin' bod while touring:

"It’s not been a joyride for me. Strength training is key so I can keep up my energy on stage, so I literally bring my gym with me. I have my own gym that we carry behind the tour bus."

And when's off the tour bus, Bret says:

"I go mountain biking [and] running. Whenever I can get off the bus, I take full advantage. I do sit-ups. A lot of sit-ups.

As a lifelong diabetic, every day is a battle. You have to accept that you have diabetes because it is the card you’ve been dealt. I work to enjoy my life like a regular human being while keeping my blood sugar levels as decent as possible. It’s a fine line, a catch-22, a balancing act."

You're obviously doing it though, Bret. Just make sure that even though you're physically fit, you take time out of yourself and try to be as stress-free as possible. You seem to be doing everything right, though.

Bret Michaels Concerned About Diabetic Daughter

But he’s doing his best to give her a great life!

Bret Michaels recently talked about how he’s working to make sure his daughter’s life isn’t negatively affected by diabetes.

Said Michaels:

“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.”

He continued:

“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.”

Keep it up, Michael — with your continual support she can do anything!

Halle Berry And Muhammad Ali

She's a knockout and he's famous for knocking people out!

Halle Berry posed with the legendary fighter Muhammad Ali while attending his Celebrity Fight Night charity in Arizona this past Saturday, which helps raise funds for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at St. Joseph's hospital.

Since beginning 17 years ago, the boxer's charity has raised more than $17 million to fight the debilitating disease, which he himself was diagnosed with in 1984.

At the event, the actress was honored with an award for her own charitable efforts to help the less fortunate.

Other celeb guests included Kevin Costner, Billy Cystal and Frankie Muniz, all entertained by Matchbox 20, Kelly Clarkson, Leen Greenwood, and Bret Michaels.

Congrats, Halle! Thanks for giving back to the world that has made you a star!
