Providing love and support to Central New England families battling cancer since 1985.
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.
We will be handing out information regarding services provided to families, as well as, talking about volunteer opportunities to attendees. We will also have some t-shirts from prior events to give away for donations received.
