The following information was received from long term member Adam Thurgar, prior to Jarrod Lyle's recent passing. I think we should take special note:
"Australian professional golfer Jarrod Lyle had made the decision to stop active treatment for his cancer and begin palliative care.
Jarrod had acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), he had multiple rounds of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant from his brother.
For people with blood cancers, like AML, a stem cell or bone marrow transplant is the only potential cure.
If you are between 18 and 45 years old you can help people with blood cancers by registering to become a donor at the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry https://www.abmdr.org.au/ "
For those who don't know Adam, he has been a fantastic Club member for many many years. He has had some significant health struggles himself in the past few years and has committed to helping those with this disease. His dream goal would be to have a "Yellow" day on the Friday of the Emirates Australian Open - like Jane McGrath "Pink Day" on Day 3 at the Sydney cricket test.
Could Camden Golf Club start the ball rolling here?
Just on this Topic:- We have all read many comments from our golfing heroes, Adam, Jason, Rickie, Marc, Tiger etc regarding the death of Jarrod Lyle. One in particular moved me more than others. Of all players, it was Robert Allenby whose reflections were most beautifully expressed. Robert has had some bad press over many years, yet his comments were superbly reflective. It made me look at Robert in a different light. Take some time and read the tribute at the bottom of the page.
