THE BROACH FOUNDATION STORY
In August of 2011, James Broach was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, a grade IV astrocytoma, also known as a glioblastoma. This came just ten months after his previous diagnosis of a grade II astrocytoma during a surgery on October 12, 2010. After his second craniotomy, James received a round of IMRT radiation along with chemotherapy. He now does a chemotherapy regiment that is thought to slow the progression of the disease. Despite the difficult treatments and the cancer growing in his brain, James knew he wanted to make an impactful difference in the fight to cure brain cancer.
Along with his wife, Jamie, he decided to actively join the effort of pursuing a cure for this extraordinarily challenging and under-funded disease. The Broaches and our Executive Board consequently established The Broach Foundation for Brain Cancer Research to raise funds and awareness for the benefit of adult brain cancer research.
