When my son was diagnosed with a malignant tumor, I was fortunate enough to meet Margaret White of Why Me. It was through Margaret and all of the wonderful volunteers that my son and I found help and hope throughout his illness. It was Margaret's experience that showed me how to cope with his eventual deterioration in health and his passing. If it wasn't for this wonderful organization, I am not sure how I would have survived. Not enough can be said of this fabulous organization!
