This week we’ve featured the Haute Secrets of Katharina Harf, the co-founder of Delete Blood Cancer. Delete Blood Cancer started with one family’s search for a bone marrow donor and is today  part of the world’s largest bone marrow donor center. It has registered more than 4 million potential donors and facilitated over 41,000 life-saving transplants. Delete Blood Cancer-DKMS Americas is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In 2004, Harf led the expansion of Delete Blood Cancer into the United States. Through this effort, Delete Blood Cancer has established a national donor recruitment program to increase and diversify the donor registry. With campaigns throughout the U.S., Delete Blood Cancer is also raising awareness about the urgent need for bone marrow donors. Harf, who is also a board member of the foundation, will co-host the 2014 Delete Blood Cancer Gala along with Honorary Gala Chairman Michele Scannavini CEO in Manhattan. Here is her insider’s guide to the City of Angels.
