The 5th Annual Mental Health Awareness Month Book Fundraiser

Posted on 1 May, 2017 by in Keith Milano Memorial Fund / 1 comment

For a 5th year in a row, I am struggling to find the right words to say thank you. How do you thank a community that has helped you keep your brother’s spirit alive—a community that helped you keep a promise made to him when he passed. Thank you just seems insufficient, but I will say it. Thank you. Thank you to the authors who have agreed to donate a portion of their May sales. Thank you to the bloggers who have agreed to help promote the event. Thank you to the readers who #1click and purchase books in support of the event. And thank you to everyone who has offered support or shared their story.
12 years ago when we lost Keith, we decided he would not go quietly, that we would fight for mental health awareness, fight to bring mental illness out of the darkness in his name. We are honored so many have stepped up and joined us in this fight. Together we can continue to open a dialogue about mental health and together we can affect change.

With Deepest Gratitude,
Denise Milano Sprung

Fund Information:

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.

If you want to know more about Keith or why Denise does what she does, here is short video/interview that speaks to that!

Be on the lookout as she will also be posting her #ShareYourWhy this month.
