Shanice Williams

Treatment, Wisconsin

When she was two years old, Shanice was diagnosed with sickle cell disease, a painful disorder which caused her to miss out on the experiences most kids take for granted.

“I pretty much lived in the hospital during my entire childhood,” says Shanice.

As a young adult, Shanice became a patient of BCW Medical Director Dr. Josh Field and began receiving blood transfusions every four to six weeks.  These treatments eased her pain, allowed her to graduate high school and work part-time as she goes to nursing school.

“Now, I know how to better control my disease,” says Shanice.  “Thanks to these treatments, I can live a normal life.”
