James Chippendale Climbs the Mountain of Life
Date:5/7/2008

DALLAS, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The top of the Empire State Building. The base camp of Mount Everest. And next, Machu Picchu. James Chippendale is a leukemia survivor and co-founder of Love Hope Strength Foundation, an international charity hosting x-treme music concerts in high locations to raise funds for cancer centers worldwide.

In March of 2000, James was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia. His doctors gave him a 50% chance of survival but after three rounds of intense chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant from a German donor, James came back healthier and stronger and ready to join the battle in helping those who helped him. Thus, he co-founded Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF) with musician and cancer survivor Mike Peters from The Alarm.

Through innovative concerts and climbs, LHSF, with chapters in the US, UK and Australia, provides critical funding for cancer centers worldwide so that ALL people have access to quality treatment and are given the best chance at survival. Founded in 2006, LHSF has already raised approximately $700,000 its first year and achieved:

-- In October 2007, 35 musicians, mountaineers, cancer survivors, and LHSF

supporters departed from Kathmandu for a monumental 14 day trek to Base

Camp of Mount Everest for an acoustic concert known as Everest Rocks,

the highest concert ever performed. Peters, Stray Cats drummer Slim

Jim Phantom, UK folk artist Nick Harper, Glenn Tillbrook of the Squeeze

and acclaimed MTV producer Alex Coletti are just a few of the music

luminaries who conquered Everest Rocks.

-- Famed MTV producer Alex Coletti documented the Everest Rocks event,

which VH1 Classic and MHD (MTV Hi-Definition Television) have just

agreed to air. In the near future, the documentary will also be

available for sale with proceeds benefiting the charity.

-- LHSF just confirmed their next x-treme music concert, Peru Rocks, at

Machu Picchu, October 8-17, 2008, with up to 100 trekkers to celebrate

their "Climb Back From Cancer(TM)."

James devotes a great deal of his time to "the cause" -- providing patients in need with the same opportunity that he had: access to quality doctors and funding for treatments and medications. He is available to discuss his experiences, the foundation, and the challenges behind obtaining proper cancer treatment. http://www.lovehopestrength.org
