In 2007, PETERS, a three-time cancer survivor himself, co-founded LOVE HOPE STRENGTH, the world's leading rock 'n' roll cancer foundation. Inspired by the powerful words he had written decades earlier, the charity unites rock stars and global citizens with a shared love of music and passion for saving lives, one concert at a time.
The "Get On The List" program registers people to the international donor registry by hosting cheek swab drives at concerts and music festivals with the support of many world renowned artists including ROBERT PLANT, KENNY CHESNEY, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS and LINKIN PARK, among others, in the wilderness and at world-class music festivals such as LOLLAPALOOZA, AUSTIN CITY LIMITS and U.K.'s ISLE OF WIGHT. Since 2008, LHSF has added over 150,000 music fans to the international bone marrow registry resulting in 3,000 potentially life-saving matches.

PETERS is currently on tour in NORTH AMERICA as part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of THE ALARM's iconic "Spirit Of '86" concert that was beamed to the world via satellite (one of the first live satellite broadcasts ever) and played live on MTV.
