Throughout the summer tour in the United States and United Kingdom, fans of Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters got ON THE LIST to be marrow donors as they entered his shows. Love Hope Strength was on hand looking for life-saving matches for patients in need of transplants to cure such diseases as Leukemia, Lymphoma and other blood cancers.
Musicians like Robert Plant are literally saving lives at their concerts by allowing Love Hope Strength register their fans, free of charge, to the national marrow registry. Registration takes a simple cheek swab and the completion of a consent form.
“Knowing that each one of our gigs has the potential to save lives is very humbling,” Plant says. “LHS is doing a great job out there in educating and raising awareness for this type of cancer. More people need to realize how simple and painless it is to get on the register and help save a life.“
