Theresa's Research Foundation was founded by Theresa Newby Harpole and her son Josh. The mission of Theresa's Research Foundation is to specifically fund RESEARCH that provides better treatment options, improves quality of life for metastatic patients,and will one day lead to a cure. Theresa lost her battle with this disease on Thanksgiving Day 2013.
We are asking the community to join us for Breast Cancer Awareness month to honor those who have lost their lives to this horrible disease. We know many people in the community who have lost wives, mothers, daughters, and granddaughters. Please help us raise money for RESEARCH. Theresa has five sisters in the area who need your help.
