Theresa's Research Foundation bio picture
  • Welcome to our website!

    Theresa's Research Foundation, a national nonprofit organization, was founded in 2013 by Josh Newby and his mother, Theresa Newby Harpole. In our first year over $30,000 was donated to Metastatic Breast Cancer research.

    Metastatic Breast Cancer, Stage IV, or advanced breast cancer, is a form of breast cancer in which the disease has spread beyond the breast into other body systems. This lethal disease is responsible for nearly 40,000 deaths each year in the U.S. and is approaching 500,000 worldwide. It is the leading cause of cancer death in women under 50. With very little funding allotted for Metastatic Breast Cancer, more resources are needed in order to Change the Odds.

Together, we can make a difference and Change the Odds.
