Bret invited Roger Guay and Tara Artinyan as his personal guests to the show in New Hampshire. Roger and Tara are the father and stepmother of Jacob Thompson. Jacob was a brave 9 year old boy who while battling cancer asked for a simple wish of Christmas cards. His wish went viral as he received thousands of Christmas cards from complete strangers around the globe.

Sadly, shortly before Christmas Jacob lost his brave fight, but left a lasting impression through his memory which will remain. There are many events taking in Jacob’s honor, please like the following page to learn more @ http://facebook.com/JacobOrangePenguin – Team Bret

See below for Roger and Tara’s note:

“Bret Michaels has been a shining light in our darkest times. Bret reached out to Roger as one dad to another, while our son was battling cancer. Nothing swells a grieving parent’s heart like knowing their child is remembered, and Bret has helped keep Jacob’s memory and legacy alive. We felt the power of his music to heal last night and we truly had nothing but a good time. We could feel Jacob with us as we danced the night away. We are forever grateful to Bret. This world needs his light. Father’s Day will be hard, but we’re riding the afterglow of such a great time. We know Jacob would have loved this.”

“Thank you again, Patrick, for facilitating this. We truly are so grateful to Bret, you, Mark, and everyone else that made this possible.”
