The Foundation derives its name from verse 353 of Consolatio ad Liviam Augusta de morte Drusi filli eius qui in Germania de morbo periit, an elegy written by the poet Publius Ovidius Naso (44 BC – 18 AD) for Livia Drusilla, wife of Augustus, on the occasion of the early death of her son, Druso Maggiore, in 9 BC.


STAND TALL, and for as long as you can, rise above your pain and your weaknesses. Ovidius, Consolatio ad Liviam
