For the 9th year, an amazing group of authors have generously agreed to donate, in Keith’s name, a portion of their May book sales to help raise awareness for mental health.
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 after he passed.
All of you reading this are part of that Thank you, all of you supporting these authors are part of that Thank you and all of you sharing your truths are part of that Thank you!
Over 16 years ago when we lost Keith, we decided he would not go quietly, that we would fight for mental health awareness in his name. At the time we had no idea what that would mean, where our journey would take us or that this community would embrace the cause and join us in the fight.
Over the past few years, we have witnessed more people speaking out but the events of the last few months have highlighted the need for more… more research, more support, and more resources. So much of this requires funds… so please support the authors taking part in this event and join us in making a difference!
This event was born organically out of us sharing Keith’s story and our family’s mission and we are humbled at how his story has resonated with so many. We continue to share his story and hope you will join us in making mental health a priority.
Our family is so touched by how this community has embraced this cause.
With Deepest Gratitude,
Denise Milano Sprung

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 are 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.
