Denise Osborn Dickerson is a resident of Mustang, OK. She was born and raised in the Oklahoma Panhandle and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education in 2003 from Oklahoma Panhandle State University. She is a former 4th grade teacher. Denise is the mother of two sons: Kyle, who is 28, married, and living in Odessa, TX. And another precious son who perished in a tragic car accident in 2009. On December 23, 2011, Denise suffered a car accident of her own. She was crushed between two vehicles while stopping to help a stranded family. While lingering between life and death at a trauma center in Amarillo TX, she saw and spoke with her 15 year old son, Kody, in Heaven. Listen to her amazing story!
She lost her foot due to this accident. Eleven months later, Denise walked a distance for the first time since the accident…down the aisle of her wedding to long-time fiancé, Guy Dickerson, who had been with her through the death of Kody and the life-changing accident. She will go through an additional surgery for amputation from the knee down and will be fitted for a new prosthetic this year. Denise speaks publicly about her inspirational story of love, loss, and survival and the impact on her live and faith. She is also an ambassador for the Oklahoma Blood Institute. Her story has inspired hundreds of others to give the gift of life.
