------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Dear Friends and Family,

To honor my 1-year anniversary (July 4) as a cancer SURVIVOR, and to celebrate this year’s very special birthday (June 26), I am joining forces with The LOVE HOPE STRENGTH Foundation to help raise global cancer care awareness.

Please visit my page:

*Any gift, small or large, will make a difference. In lieu of birthday presents this year, I would love to receive donations. Thank you!

*By getting “on the list” you might be the one person to save a life!


LHSF is an international, music-centric cancer charity dedicated to saving lives, one concert at a time. The mission is to save lives, right now, with the advances that have already been made in cancer care. We do not fund cancer research; rather we use our funds to:

Build and support cancer centers around the globe.

Build awareness of global cancer needs.

Build internatioanl marrow databases through the "GET ON THE LIST" campaign.


As of 2010, cancer is now the world’s #1 killer and will touch each and every one of us in our lifetime. It is a global issue in need of support from a worldwide network. In 2007, LHSF was co-founded by leukemia survivors Mike Peters of the Welsh rock band The Alarm and President of CSI Entertainment James Chippendale who believe that awareness, early detection and proper treatment should not be a luxury and wanted to find a way to ensure that all people have access to the same resources that saved their lives.


Funds from recent events have:

-Purchased the first mammography machine for the country of Nepal.

-Purchased the first brachytherapy (internal radiation) machine for the country of Nepal.

-Funded a mobile cancer unit which will screen and treat 20-000-30,000 patients per year in remote regions of Peru.

-Funded a new wing for a cancer care center in Wales.

-Purchased a transport vehicle for a children’s cancer center in New Jersey.

-Conducted over 200 bone marrow drives at venues such as The Pepsi Center and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Mile High Music Fest, Union County Music Fest and Austin City Limits.

-Added over 10,000 people to the national marrow database.

-Located over 80 matches for patients in need of bone marrow transplants.

-Brought supplies to cancer centers in need around the world.

-Hosted the first saliva-based bone marrow registration drive at a concert in UK.

-Funded the making of Everest Rocks, a documentary on cancer survivorship now in it’s 3rd year of airing on Palladia (MTV High Def Channel) and new airings on NBC’s Universal Sports.

-Funded a Public Service Announcement on the need for bone marrow donors with world renowned musicians at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
