Taking advantage of a sunny afternoon on the beach after a hectic week, we were delighted to come across a photograph of the gorgeous and inspirational Katharina Harf of DKMS in the August issue of Vogue.
Katharina has dedicated her life to the fight against leukemia through her family’s non-profit German Bone Marrow Donor Center, or DKMS, which she helped to co-found in the early 1990s after her mother was diagnosed with acute leukemia. As part of her very personal crusade, Katharina has initiated donor recruitment programs that have attracted the attention of 2.7M donors worldwide as well as a U.S. national campaign that has significantly raised leukemia awareness and increased the diversity of the DKMS donor pool.
Vera has long been involved with Katharina and DKMS through her relationship with Coty and Coty chairman, Peter Harf. Vera even literally lit up the Empire State Building in honor of DKMS with Lovestruck girl Leighton Meester!!
Becoming a DKMS Bone Marrow Donor is a free and fabulous thing to do. Join the fight!
