The Love Hope Strength Foundations (LHS) are committed to giving hope to people living with cancer. Through its ‘Get On The List’ programme, LHS helps identify blood stem cell donors to match with those in need of a second chance at life. LHS also support life-saving and life-changing projects across the globe.
Long explanation of the impact of LHS
Love Hope Strength (LHS) was founded in the UK & USA over a decade ago by internationally acclaimed musician Mike Peters and his wife Jules Peters after Mike was diagnosed with cancer for a second time.
LHS is committed to giving hope to people living with cancer across the globe. Through its ‘Get On The List’ programme, LHS helps identify blood stem cell donors to match with people living with blood cancer or blood disorders who need a second chance at life. Incredibly, LHS has already delivered over 200,000 people to international blood stem cell donor registries. This has resulted in over 4,000 potentially life saving matches being found (as of January 2019). LHS also supports life saving and life changing equipment and special projects across the globe which are aimed at supporting some of the most vulnerable people affected by cancer. LHS has equipped and supported hospitals and community cancer services in the UK, Africa, Asia and the USA.
LHS harnesses the support of people in the music and events industries, those who are passionate about music and people that enjoy the outdoors and value the importance of wellbeing to help achieve its mission: to save and change lives, one concert, one step, one helping hand at a time.
Led by volunteers and supported through partnerships with leading international organisations, LHS aims to provide its supporters with value for money and opportunities to have fun whilst providing those it serves with a lifeline.
