Michaels, a Type 1 diabetic since age 6, won his season on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” raising funds for the American Diabetes Association. In all, Michaels’ charitable efforts have helped raise more than $3 million for diabetes research. Michaels has also assisted in raising funds for wounded U.S. veterans, childhood cancer research, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and PetSmart Charities.
