Riding for LIPF to preserve the memory of our dear friend, DP, as well as ours to never forget that their are many other dear friends and loved ones out there that need support.
The LIPF was founded by Timothy Price in October of 2011 after his brother David completed suicide on October 15th, 2011. David was only 31 years of age when he took his life in his home in New York City. David was suffering from severe depression, post traumatic stress disorder and “survivors guilt” since the loss of his mother Elaine Price in September of 2009. While Timothy was an active participant in David’s therapy, he realized that David’s particular conditions were extremely difficult to treat clinically. After David’s suicide Timothy realized that more could be done and as a first step asked that donations be made, to what would become LIPF, in lieu of flowers at his funeral. LIPF is currently made up of two people Timothy B. Price and Susan Rudolph. We are actively seeking additional members to make up our board and are a 501c3 Not For Profit. We believe that if we can even save one persons life, then perhaps David’s sacrifice will provide some justification to his pre-mature death.
