Throughout many trials and triumphs, San Antonio’s Kinsey family has learned to never take life too seriously. They live and laugh through every day with the mindset that any and every moment is precious and important.
It’s a lesson that has not come easily.
Betsy Kinsey, the loving mother of three children, has had to deal with all three of her children’s diagnoses with immune-system-destroying cancer.
For the rest of their lives, Steven, 18, Bethany, 16, and Jonathon, 11, will need frequent blood and tissue donations in a process that is long, arduous, and exhausting. When receiving the donations, the children are given medications that make them sleep for several hours. But the waking result of their treatment is a painful one, as headaches and nausea plague them, like the effects of chemotherapy.
