Last Friday, Cindy Crawford and Delete Blood Cancer co-founder Katharina Harf brought Hollywood together at Jimmy Choo's Rodeo Drive boutique, as they invited guests to take part in supporting Delete Blood Cancer, a foundation dedicated to registering lifesaving bone marrow donors in the fight against blood cancer. Guests including Cat Deeley, George Kotsiopoulos and Shaun Robinson were also invited to do a little shopping with a portion of the evening’s proceeds benefiting the cause.

"In the United States, blood cancer is the second leading cause of all cancer deaths and kills more children than any other disease," says Harf. "Even though many patients might be saved by a bone marrow transplant, six out of 10 patients will never receive one. DKMS has made it its goal to turn the tide, and save more lives."

Delete Blood Cancer DKMS began with the Harf family’s search for a bone marrow donor for Katharina's mother in 1990. Since then, the organization has registered over 4.5 million donors globally and provided more than 40,000 patients with a fresh start.
