We are excited to announce that the 5th annual Miles 4 Milla's House is a go for 2021 and the softest t-shirts will be back!

Register by Sunday, May 16th at midnight in order to guarantee a t-shirt!

Information

We are raising awareness for Baptist Centers for Good Grief, Milla’s House.

2020 was a hard year on many fronts for all of us.

Two major factors that stress the immense need for additional funding to Milla's House is the loss of so many loved ones due to COVID and the increase in the city's murder rate in 2020. The needs are great, the waiting lists are long and with additional funds, the services will continue to be provided to our community and move us toward healing.

About Milla's House

The Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief, Milla’s House, is named in memory of Milla Gieselmann, the 6-year-old daughter of Memphis couple Frazer and Dana Gieselmann. In November 2016, Milla died from Batten disease, an inherited neurodegenerative disorder for which there is no cure.

The Gieselmanns’ 5-year-old daughter, Elle, also tested positive for Batten disease, while 8-year-old Ann Carlyle tested negative and is healthy. The Gieselmanns have relied heavily on the Grief Center, and Milla’s father, Frazer Gieselmann, says the Center continues to be essential to their family's journey through a grief that is complicated and messy. He emphasized that the Center had not only been essential to his family, but to his extended family and close friends, as well.
