Luke Kelley

Bull Rider

Cowboys Helping Cowboys is proud to support 2010 CBR World Champion Bull Rider, Luke Kelley and his family; including wife, Kelly and their three children.


Luke has suffered multiple brain aneurysms and has had to have multiple surgeries. Additionally, following a mammogram the day before one of Luke’s surgeries, his wife Kelly received results of potential breast cancer. It was later confirmed through additional testing. Kelly has begun to undergo chemotherapy treatment.


What we love about our rodeo community is their faith and spirit no matter what we have to walk through and that is proven in the Kelley’s story where Kelly stated, “I do not want you to feel sorry for us, I just ask for you to pray for us! God has a plan! Otherwise, he wouldn't have put me on the doorstep of the best breast cancer center in the Midwest! 2022 has been rough I am not going to lie! But our faith is strong, and our family and friends are strong! We are so blessed with such an amazing support team!”

Dusty LaValley

Bareback Rider

We are proud to support Dusty LaValley as a CHC beneficiary. Dusty is a 4x Canadian champion and 2x NFR Bareback rider, who was diagnosed November 2021 with ALS. Dusty has literally the fight of his life ahead of him. While there is currently no cure for this disabling brain disease, Dusty is seeking every treatment possible to slow the progression and live life to the fullest!


The doctors have told Dusty he only has 3 years to live. Like the typical cowboy, Dusty refuses to accept that diagnosis!


We are proud to help support Dusty and his family in this fight and together with the CHC support we hope he is able to enjoy his family and life with the quality we all deserve!
