Tonight DKMS, the largest bone marrow donor centre in the world, hosted its 6th annual gala event and honored Heidi Klum for her work in fighting blood cancer.
The gorgeous supermodel, who looked amazing in her long, low plunging silver dress was present at an earlier lighting ceremony where she helped illuminate the Empire State Building in red and white to raise awareness for the fight against blood cancer. Klum said;
“I am honored to join Bernd and DKMS in their all-important fight against blood cancer, and to celebrate the sixth annual DKMS Gala. When the Empire State Building is shining red and white, I hope that it will remind everyone who sees it that we all have the power to save lives. As a mother, I am especially mindful that leukemia is the most common form of cancer among children; I hope these efforts will inspire people to register as bone marrow donors with DKMS and possibly save the life of a patient in need.”
Sounds like a wonderful cause!
