Robert Plant Saving Lives One Show at a Time

During Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters shows last year, Plant and the SSS allowed the Love, Hope, Strength Foundation  into the building to sign up as bone marrow donors through their On The List campaign. Fan's entering the show could have a cheek swab done and fill out a consent form.

Thousands of patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia, sickle cell anemia and over 70 other life threatening disease world wide rely on finding a donor. The odds of identifying a compatible marrow donor is 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 1,000,000.

According to, Love, Hope, Strength is now reporting that a match has been found from a fan who signed up at a Strange Sensation show. Good on the fan, who's possibly saving a life and good on Robert and the band for facilitating this simple connection.
