Patient, Neuroendocrine Cancer

My name is Sheena Harris-Williams. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Chestnut Hill College in the areas of Early Childhood and Elementary Education, along with a Reading Specialist certification. I am an educator. I own and operate a daycare here in Philadelphia. I married the love of my life, James on October 26, 2019. In June 2020, I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer. I’m currently in treatment and trying to navigate this new journey. I am fortunate to have a loving and supportive host of family and friends.
