Destry hasn't been feeling good lately and was hurting pretty bad. It turns out he has Leukemia and will be starting treatment ASAP. Destry is going to be in the hospital for a couple of weeks while the bills pile up. His families main income comes from his riding schools and racing. We appreciate everyone's support, thank you.

Latest Update by Destry: "I just wanted to give everyone a little update! Let me start off by saying I'm still floored by everyone's support and it means more to me then you know! This has been the hardest thing I've every dealt with and I thought I had put my body through a lot already! I might have to write a book about everything over the next 5-months in here, because I've already had some crazy and surreal experiences. (J/K). Today marks day three of chemo and I'm hanging in there. Still don't know what to expect with all the treatment so I think that's the hardest part right now. We've checked our options and have amazing Doctors around us that specialize in the type of Leukemia I have, so at this point I'm confident this is by far the best way to go. It's going to be a long road and I'm fine with that! I'm up for the challenge!
It's amazing how the little things like sitting outside on a bench with friends and family mean so much more now. Anyone that knows me, knows I always give it 100% with everything and enjoy life to its fullest. I don't have any regrets and just want to do my best to get back to feeling normal (which has been a long time and now I understand why). I'm really missing my Family, DA8 Gym Family, Riding Students, and Riding Partners. However I feel very confident with my support system and amazing sponsors supporting me through this! I wish I could make a list of everyone that has stepped up with fundraisers, benefit rides, t-shirts, stickers, etc. but I honestly don't even know where to start! Thank you so much and it has been a huge relief for us since my wife and kids have been by my side from the beginning! I love you all so much and will do my best to be back ASAP! Please enjoy every moment with your family and friends! Trust me that's what will mean the most to you and to your loved ones!!! heart emoticon"

Here's a recent update from Destry: "I don't even know where to start!!! I've been at the hospital since Sunday and just got word that I have Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. I'll be starting Chemo tomorrow and I definitely have a long race ahead of me! I will be doing 14-days of chemo then 10-days at home (limited visitors) then back to the hospital for 14-days and repeating for 5-months. After the 5 months chemo cycle is done we'll see how things look and go from there! I'm floored on the support we've received and you guys don't know how much this will help!!! It honestly brings tears to my eyes to know what a great sport this is and to know how much it's going to help with the 5-months at the hospital!!! I love you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!"

Wow! We can't believe the overwhelming response these past few hours. It's amazing and we weren't expecting it. We know Destry helps anyone anywhere never asking for anything in return, so it's cool to see the support he has from family, friends, and fans. Tomorrow he starts Chemo and we will have a definite answer within the next few days on which type of Leukemia he has. We will post an update when that happens. Again, thank you all so much it means it means more than you know ❤️
