#GoodLuckJarrod - post a message

The news that Jarrod Lyle was back in hospital for a third fight against cancer has hit many hard.

It’s sometimes tough to find the right words to express your thoughts, but as Jarrod begins another battle with acute myeloid leukemia, it’s important to be able to share your sentiment with a man who’s touched so many with his compassion off the course as much as his golf itself.

Close friends, passing acquaintances or just someone who’s impacted by Jarrod’s stoic attitude and never-give-up spirit, here’s the spot where we can all reach out and share our thoughts.

Jarrod Lyle
"I'm aware that I didn't have much to lose in the first place, but decided to anticipate what's to come and shave my head before it started falling out. Wondering if I'll get 'chemo curls' this time"

This #GoodLuckJarrod page is the place to share your best wishes with Jarrod and his family – and he’s promised to read as many as he can during his fight.

We encourage you to reach out and share your thoughts below with a man who will thrive knowing he has the support of a community that wants nothing more than his good health.

Write your note, sign it off with #GoodLuckJarrod and keep your fingers crossed.

If that still doesn’t feel enough to you, log on to and make a donation to Challenge, of which Jarrod is a proud ambassador, as they help with kids as they battle cancer.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers. My seven year old son was diagnosed with leukaemia when he was 3 and a half years old and I cannot comprehend going through that treatment a third time. May you find the inner strength to fight the fight and I will wear my yellow belt with pride and as a reminder of how lucky I am to have the health to enjoy my game of golf. May God bless you and heal you. Warm regards Peter
