The panelist Kim Sisneros
Kim Sisneros

Kim Sisneros cares for her handsome husband Bob (Bobby) Sisneros. He was diagnosed with MM in July, 2015. It’s been a tough six years for them as they've always been very active in their social lives and running hard all the time with their friends and family. They have loved taken camping trips to motorcycle rides, beautiful vacations, wine tasting in the Napa Valley and just enjoying life with the ones they love the most. However, once Bob was diagnosed with MM they quickly realized they should slow down and smell the roses and not take anything for granted. Kim loves good wine and would consider herself to be in the category of a “wine snob”. She enjoys all the snuggles from their dog Jesse who gives them joy every single day!
