Graham Jam – Rocking for a Cause Benefit Concert + Silent Auction

Graham Jam Fundraiser

March 26, 2024

In Greater Des Moines (DSM), it’s not unusual for people to come together to help support one another. And that’s exactly what the friends and family of Graham Towlerton have come together to do as he bravely battles stage four glioblastoma. Since 2022, Graham has undergone three major surgeries, endured grueling rounds of chemo and radiation and even travels monthly to the Mayo Clinic, in his quest for the best possible treatment.

But his greatest inspiration? His seven-year-old son, Foster.

Being a father is Graham's driving force. He wants nothing more than to spend as much precious time with Foster, making memories that will last a lifetime. This fierce love fuels his unwavering spirit in this incredible fight. Beyond being an amazing dad, Graham is known for his generosity and unmatched work ethic. Sadly, this debilitating disease has taken a toll on his ability to work, adding financial strain to the emotional hardship.

This is where we come in.

Join us for a fundraiser to support Graham and his family. Your presence and generosity will directly help offset the costs of his ongoing treatments and trips to the Mayo Clinic. Every contribution, big or small, will make a world of difference. Let's come together as a community to lift the Towlertons up during this challenging time.
