On March 28th Derek was diagnosed with Leukemia. He was transferred to University Hospital in Denver for further testing and they diagnosed him with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Derek is scheduled to start chemo therapy today (April 1st) and will be staying in the hospital for at least a month for treatment and further observation. He is in great spirits and hoping this month will fly by. Derek and his wife Lyndsay welcomed their first child in June. They are also working on remodeling a home.
Feedlot Rodeo, Auction, Calcutta, BBQ, and Dance will all be taking place there at New Raymer Community Center.
The funds raised by Feeders and Friends will be used to help cover medical bills for everything related to Derek’s leukemia diagnosis along with additional bills dependent upon their work situation when Derek is out of the hospital and trying to care for their newborn. For more info click HERE.
