The special Hertha Berlin kit featured a logo with the a footprint and the writing "Für Pauline" ('for Pauline') to make aware of the fate of little Pauline, who was diagnosed with blood cancer.

With her footprint on the jersey, the professional footballers want to draw attention to all people worldwide who suffer from blood cancer and are dependent on a life-saving stem cell donation

"Since I have been a Hertha member for a long time, I thought I would simply write to the association by e-mail. In such a situation, you have nothing to lose," explains Pauline's father Alexander touched. "We are very happy and grateful that Hertha BSC has complied with our request. Thanks to the wide reach of the club channels and even a video call from the sports director Arne Friedrich, our request was brought to our attention. We would never have expected that Pauline would now even be on the jersey on behalf of all the sick people at the home game to draw attention to this important issue. The commitment of Hertha BSC is simply outstanding!"
