Dennis Acosta, father of three (Ryan, Zach and Max) and husband to Lisa has been diagnosed and battling colon cancer for the past 2 years.
Dennis was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado and has lived in Pueblo all of his life. He grew up playing sports, earning the nickname "5er" based on the number 5 he proudly wore in all of his sports competitions. Dennis has been, and continues to play a role in the Pueblo community. Dennis is known for giving up countless hours to coach youth sports as well as play a very important role in his church. Dennis has always been a religious man, leading many to Christ on his walk with God. During his fight with cancer, Dennis has used every oppurtunity to minister to other cancer patients that are suffering from this terrible disease.
After finishing school, Dennis took a position with Standard Sales- Budweiser.He started as a driver and worked his way to warehouse manager. Dennis worked there for 27 years. Due to extensive and intense chemotherapy, Dennis had to stop working. Doctors are reporting that chemo is no longer working or helping Dennis and all treatments have been ceased. Currently, Dennis and his family are in the process of working with new doctors in Denver for a clinical trial. Therefore, all future doctor appointments will now take place in Denver. Dennis' wife Lisa is a self-employed child care provider and has taken over supporting the family home. With doctors appointments now in Denver, Lisa will be forced to shut down her daycare to tend to Dennis and his needs. We are asking for any donation small or large to help out the Acosta family in their time of need. All proceeds will go to Dennis and his family as they continue this battle. We hope that you will join in on this fight with Dennis because NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE! TO GOD BE THE GLORY! Thank you in advance for your SUPPORT! May God Bless You!
