A Second Dance at Life/Miller Tribute

The Miller Tribute Campaign

We had to cancel our 2021 Second Dance at Life gala due to safety concerns during COVID-19. This leaves us feeling the financial setback of not hosting the event for two years in a row AND disappointment over not being able to honor the Millers. See below for how you can still support Transplant House and their amazing dedication.

Erica and Charlie Miller have been key to Transplant House of Cleveland’s inception and growth, believing in its importance before the doors opened in 2014 and every day since. The fact that this home-away-from-home has cared for more than 1400 families through more than 37,000 nights of housing and hundreds of “touches of hospitality” and support is due in great part to their dedication.

To honor their commitment, we have launched the Miller Tribute Campaign. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to ensure that the heart of this organization continues to be seen and felt through one-on-one counseling and transplant “navigation” provided by our clinical transplant social worker, formal and informal support groups for patients and caregivers, an AA group for transplant candidates and recipients, Transplant Topics educational presentations, nourishing meals, self-care offerings such as massage and yoga, music and art therapy, and more.

With your support, we will delight Erica and Charlie, and all of our guests, by preserving the Miller’s story through a special display in the center of Transplant House of Cleveland’s community space where guests are greeted and where they gather, eat, learn, and form relationships.
