Five-time PGA Tour champion Jonathan Byrd turned to social media hoping to find a kidney donor for his mother.
"Her best possible option is to find a living donor with O positive or O negative blood type," Byrd said in a video posted Monday on Twitter. "Up to this point, she's had 12 friends and family come forward to donate their kidney but unfortunately no one has been approved a match yet. This would greatly improve her quality of life."
Byrd, 41, said his mother, Jo, is battling kidney disease. He lost his father, Jim, to brain cancer in 2009. His former caddie, Chuck Hoersch, passed away in 2012 after battling pancreatic cancer.
Byrd competed in 17 events on the PGA Tour in the 2019 season, posting his best finish in March when he placed fourth at the Corales Puntacana Championship in the Dominican Republic.
