Jonas Brothers


He and brothers Joe and Kevin help raising awareness on the disease by making a donation worth $100,000 to benefit the Change for the Children foundation.

Becoming pop stars and everyone's idols, Jonas Brothers sure know how to make use their fame for good cause. The siblings are teaming up with Bayer to fight diabetes, which Nick Jonas has been diagnosed with recently.

Attempting to raise awareness on the disease, Nick in companion of brothers Kevin Jonas and Joe Jonas have all spent their time Wednesday, August 6 making an appearance before the crowd at New York City's W Hotel to help spread their words on the issue. The threesome are teaming up with the Bayer Diabetes Care organization to raise awareness among young people everywhere about proper diabetes care.

Personally sharing his experience on losing his weight before the diagnosis and how he maintains his condition in check amidst his hectic schedule with the band, Nick told the crowd "When I was first diagnosed, I did think, 'Why me?'" He continued saying "I had a great medical history. I had never stayed in the hospital before. I didn't know anybody with diabetes. So it was a shock."

Supporting the cause, Bayer has donated money to the Jonas Brothers' foundation, dubbed the Change for the Children, to help support the musicians' diabetes awareness campaign.

Video of Nick talking about his diabetes can be watched on Foxnews.com.
