Landon Tollefson was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) in April. He has been receiving treatment in Iowa City at UIHC since that time and will undergo a bone marrow transplant on October 13th.

Friends and family have organized a benefit for him on September 18th in Sheffield. It will be a birthday themed benefit, as he spent his 3rd birthday (Aug. 24th) in the hospital, family tells NIT.

“We will have a wide variety of carnival games for the kids, including a bounce house, face painting and a magic show,” his grandmother, Tammy Sorensen, says.

“A free will lunch of beef burgers, walking tacos and hot dogs will be served from 11-2 PM. We will be having root beer floats and sundaes for $2.00 throughout the day. Our silent and live auction will have many wonderful items.”

Included in the live auction will be:

A signed football from the Green Bay Packers (the entire team has signed it)
A dishwasher from Zilges
4 round trip tickets from Air Choice One
A signed picture from Chicago Cubs, Anthony Rizzo
An autographed picture from Pete Rose
Items from ISU, Iowa and UNI (wonderful items from Seth Tuttle)
2 signed and numbered Terry Redlin prints
A cedar patio cooler
Items from the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears
iPad Air
And more

“We will also have Iowa Marrow Organization there to offer information on how to become a bone marrow donor,” Tammy Sorensen explained. “Iowa Life Serve and Iowa Organ Donation will also have information to hand out.”
