“How do you not let the death of your son define who you are? I will always be Nick’s Mom” says Theresa Hart, Gold-Star Mother of Nicholas Newby who tragically lost his life while serving for the Army in 2011.
Theresa shares her journey of sending her son off to Iraq, to ultimately lose him to a roadside IED just weeks before he was set to come home.
Undoubtedly she and her family was shaken from the loss of Nick, but she wouldn’t sit on the sidelines for long before the opportunity arose to help Nick’s Brothers and Sisters who have served our country to support our freedoms.
Her support for those who reached out to her in the wake dealing with the loss lead her to start the local non-profit, Newby-Ginnings. Today, Newby-Ginnings has helped serve thousands of Veterans in our community and will continue to do so with the support of the community.
