Monthly Support Group Meetings


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.

Parent to Parent Support Group - TBD We welcome any new families who have yet to attend a Parent to Parent Support Group meeting.  We look forward to connecting you with new families and continuing to provide support and assistance to families who have a child who is being treated or has been treated for childhood cancer.  The Parent to Parent group aims to inform families about different aspects of childhood cancer and enable parents to gain confidence and support by sharing their experiences with one another – from diagnosis, through treatment and into survivorship.  Dinner and childcare are provided.

Why Me & Sherry's House - A History

Love & Support for Families with Childhood Cancer

The Why Me organization was conceived and created by 13-year-old Sherry Shepherd during her four year battle with cancer. She was the very first patient at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center when they first opened their pediatric oncology department. Sherry found many wonderful ways to lift the spirits of her fellow cancer patients as a means to ease their suffering. During her struggle with cancer, she became an inspiration to all who knew her, especially the other children being treated for cancer that she met. In the last months of her life, Sherry became determined to do something that would have a lasting value in the community to help children with cancer. With the help of her dad, she founded the non-profit organization WHY ME, which stands for Worcester Help for Youth, Memories Everlasting.  Read More
