Starting Long Fight With A Win

Starting Long Fight With A Win

Jarrod Lyle has won the first battle in his fight against leukemia, but the war is far from over.

Hi everybody.

I wanted to start out by saying a huge thank you to everybody for your messages of support over the last 5 weeks. They haven't gone unnoticed. We have been inundated with support, and it’s very overwhelming and humbling.

After being diagnosed in late July, I spent 3 weeks in hospital in Melbourne having my first brutal round of chemo. I was surprised by how well I was able to handle it this time, with only a few bad side effects and a couple of miserable days. The main goal of the first round of chemo was to get rid of the leukaemic cells and get me into remission, and I responded very well and accomplished that goal.  As of just last week I’m now in remission, so with this big step forward we can now definitely look towards a bone marrow transplant in the near future. This is the only way forward to get a complete cure from this disease and one that my doctors are keen to get organised.

The outpouring of support for Jarrod Lyle shows just how much the Victorian means to Australian golf as the 35-year-old returned to hospital to face a recurrence of acute myeloid leukaemia.

Lyle's wife Briony confirmed the diagnosis on Wednesday afternoon after Lyle had been in for a routine test on a cough. Those results would show blood abnormalities and Lyle now faces cancer for the third time.
