On December 6, 2017, PGA TOUR player, Jarrod Lyle, underwent his third bone marrow transplant for acute myeloid leukemia. Jarrod initially contracted the disease as a 17 year-old, relapsed in March 2012, necessitating a second transplant before suffering a third recurrence in July 2017. Jarrod has spoken openly about his health and the challenges ahead. His chances of a full recovery diminish significantly with each relapse.
His wife, Briony, and two young daughters Lusi and Jemma, have sustained him in his battle. Jarrod will not be returning to the PGA TOUR or Web.com Tour. Currently, his time and energy is focused on recovery from this latest operation. He is receiving the best of care. Jarrod will be required to remain in Melbourne for three months following his operation. Melbourne is a 90-minute drive from his home in Torquay.
The PGA TOUR has declared a “January for Jarrod” month whereby players, the golf community and others will be able to assist Jarrod and his family meet the significant costs he now faces including day-to-day living, family and medical expenses.
