A book recommended for the nonfiction buff. This is a poignant story about a brave lady whose demise 70 years ago still has an impact on the health & welfare of everyone to this day. Henrietta Lacks’ enduring cancer cells have resulted in outstanding breakthroughs in medical research over the years.
It would have been kind & moral for Henrietta's family to have benefited from her unique biological input which has had such positive repercussions in medicine to this very day. I am sure that is what Henrietta would have wished as her last words were in regard to the care & welfare of her young children once she was gone.
