The terribly disturbing news that Leukaemia has finally beaten brave Jarrod Lyle came yesterday on his Instagram page in what was termed a "final post".

Jarrod Lyle hugs his two girls in his hospital bed.

Since then Lyle's lifelong friend Evan Gale has set up a donation page to help the Lyle family with expenses at this difficult time.

Tripp Isenhour has set a GoFundMe page for Jarrod's girls.

The PGA Tour have also set up a YouCaring Page for the family.

A statement on the page was posted by Jarrod's wife Bri.

“My heart breaks as I type this message. Earlier today Jarrod made the decision to stop active treatment and begin palliative care. He has given everything that he’s got to give, and his poor body cannot take anymore. We’ll be taking him closer to home in the next couple of days so he can finally leave the hospital.”

“Jarrod knows he is loved, and the thousands of prayers and well wishes that have been sent his way have kept him going through some incredibly tough times. But he has reached his limit, and the docs have finally agreed that they can no longer strive for a positive outcome.

“My focus as of today is on our girls and doing whatever I can to get them through the challenges ahead. Jarrod will be closer to them very soon, and will spend as much time as he can with them.”

Like all who have cancer, Jarrod Lyle has battled so bravely and during periods of remission still provided us with some magical moments on the golf course such as this hole in one on the 16th at Phoenix in 2011.

Wishing you peace on your journey Jarrod.
