July update

22 July 2018

It is almost a year to the day that Jarrod relapsed with leukaemia (July 24, 2017). We had high hopes of being well on the way to recovery at this point in time, but we are still a long way off. The past 4-5 weeks have been some of the hardest we’ve had to face amongst all of Jarrod’s health battles, and things continue to be incredibly tough.

Six months in

It’s been 190 days since Jarrod’s stem cell transplant, and we are going through a really rough patch at the moment. I’m typing this blog on his behalf because he’s not able to do it. Due to a few complications along the way, he’s still on a boatload of daily medication that is starting to take its toll on his body.

Golf before transplant

Golf before transplant

I’m writing this blog from this years Emirates Australian Open, where I’m soaking up all that Aussie golf has to offer. Officially I’m here to ‘work’ in our merchandise tent, but I’m also going to do some commentary for Channel 7 and AO radio. Apparently I’ve got a good face for radio…

Fighting off the course

Fighting off the course

28 August 2017

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.

Go Time

Go Time

17 June 2014

I am writing this blog from the hotel at Melbourne airport as we are less than 24 hours away from leaving Australian shores.

Things have been very busy since my last blog. I have been playing a lot of golf, and playing well too. I have celebrated my 2nd birthday and had a surprise party to mark the occasion. After my transplant on June 8th 2012, I decided to celebrate that day instead of my actual birthday. Attached to the day is "Jarrod's annual cord transplant golf day extravaganza" that I have played for the last two years with some of my closest friends. It could be the most hotly contested golf tournament going around!
