Eva Herzigova is on a mission. The Czech supermodel has teamed with the DKMS to spread the word about the simple way we can help children with leukemia and others in need. After hearing the heartbreaking story of five year old, Kai Anderson’s struggle with leukemia and his family’s search for a donor, Eva decided to get involved and find a way to use her position to raise awareness. The goal of the ‘Get Swabbed, Save A Life‘ campaign is simple – the creation of a worldwide DNA database in order to help find matches for bone marrow transplants. As large as this undertaking is the process itself is non-invasive – swabbing the cheek takes five seconds and can ultimately make the difference between life and death.
