Why Me is a grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to providing love and support services to families with childhood cancer. Created and run in part by parents that lived this experience first-hand, the dedicated staff and volunteers understand what families with a pediatric cancer patient need and are passionate about services provided. Our support begins the moment your child is diagnosed and is available throughout every step of your child’s treatment and beyond. Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, Why Me is the vision of thirteen year old Sherry Shepherd, and the promise by those who loved her to keep her dream alive.

Why Me offers financial and emotional support services based on the unique needs of each specific family so each member can understand and manage the changes that pediatric cancer will inevitably bring throughout the course of treatment.
Since Why Me provides its families with a number of services, there are a variety of ways someone can get involved with our organization. From baking cookies to volunteering to fundraising, lending a hand to our community is simple and catered to what you are comfortable doing. We make it simple.
Due to the compromised immune system's of our kids we must ask Sherry's House visitors to stay home if anyone in your family has a sniffle, cough or has been exposed to someone who has been sick. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
