Theresa's Research was founded by Theresa Newby, the aunt to Mrs. Stilwell and Mrs. Morrissey, and the great aunt to 6 of our students. She was also a daughter, a sister, a mom, an aunt, a great aunt, and she would now be a very proud grandma. Theresa was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (breast cancer that spreads to other parts of your body) and fought the disease for years. It was her dream to start a foundation that would educate and help try to find a cure for this horrible disease. Theresa passed away in 2013, but her son, Josh, along with her sister has kept her dream alive and has worked hard to raise funds that go directly to cancer research. She would be honored and so proud to know that we are raising money to help her foundation here at St. Ambrose!
