As Director of Athletics at Iowa State, Jamie Pollard’s life is very public. So, too, are the lives of his immediate family. That includes 10-year-old son, James.

Many Cyclone fans know some parts of James’ story. As a 10-pound baby at birth, 3½ pounds comprised James and the remainder was a tumor (size of a basketball).

Over the last several years – as he has faced recurrences of the tumor and endured multiple chemo treatments – James’ story is one of courage, perseverance and family love and support.

The Pollard’s tale – which frequently swings toward James – is being shared Saturday on WHO-Radio (1040 AM) at 2 p.m.

Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg, known as America’s Family Coaches, are award-winning authors and marriage conference speakers. On Des Moines radio, they highlight Iowans and their remarkable stories.

Tomorrow, the radio hosts will share the Pollard’s story. It’s not a Cyclone story necessarily, but with this sports-crazed family Iowa State Athletics is never far from the conversation.

James’ story has touched the hearts of many. On Saturday, you can hear how a courageous little guy continues to inspire through words shared by his dad and mom.

Go Cyclones, and more importantly, go James!
