THE STORY:

Love, Hope Strength (lovehopestrength.org) is a cancer fighting foundation that came to my attention at a concert several years ago.  While at St. Andrew’s Hall for a Frank Turner show, a LHS volunteer asked if I'd like to sign up for the International Bone Marrow Registry via a simple cheek swab.  Thus I became aware of the Get On The List campaign. The notion that they were “saving lives, one concert at a time,” struck me as ingenious. The concert going community is a warm welcoming group so, of course these kind, giving people would submit a cheek swab to potentially save a life. I was not wrong, so far LHS have been able to add over 129,000 music fans to the registry and found over 2,400 potentially lifesaving matches. I continue to see the LHS volunteers at concerts and wish I could do more; getting on the International Bone Marrow Registry is a one-time deal. Fundraising for LHS via the Detroit Free Press half marathon allows me to continue to give to this great charity. They think outside the box, gather together like minded music lovers (my favorite and the most generous of folks!), all while helping some of the most vulnerable among us: those fighting blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. Please consider donating and thank you! Jen
