Hertha BSC starts campaign for blood cancer patients
‘für Pauline’ which translates to ‘For Pauline’ and two footprints would be seen on the chest of the players of the German side. The reason they will don the special shirt is deeply saddening.
It is for a little girl named, Pauline. She is aged eight months old and is suffering from leukaemia (blood cancer).
The club has started the campaign to spread awareness about the life-threatening disease. The motive is to encourage people to register and become stem-cell donors. This would help save the life of Pauline.
Hertha BSC Tweeted the following:

Alexander, Pauline’s father who has been the member of Herth BSC had mailed the club explaining the situation about his daughter’s fight with life.
He said, “Since I’ve been a Hertha member for a long time, I thought I would just write to the club by email. In such a situation you have nothing to lose.”
The club urged everyone to help them fight for the special cause on social media. Arne Friedrich, the Sports Director took to Twitter to explain and encourage everyone for registration.
