Mental illness can impact anyone, anywhere, at any time. We came face to face with that reality in January 2021. A son, brother, nephew, grandson, cousin and friend, Parker DuBois had so much more life left to live. He was only 22 years old.

The idea of PD3 began in April 2021. We knew Parker’s life was going to serve a greater purpose, and we had to make sure that would happen. We don’t want anyone else to go through the pain and suffering that Parker went through. We don’t want any more families to go through losing a loved one to suicide. Countless other families can avoid the grief, pain, and emptiness we still feel through awareness, support, and advocacy. We know we can’t fight this stigma alone, but with the community’s help, we can do our part to end suicide and carry on Parker’s legacy. Your help and support mean the world to us.
