Summary
This ABC News report looks at the amazing scientific contribution of Henrietta Lacks. While being treated for cervical cancer in 1951 at Johns Hopkins Hospital, doctors removed some of her tumor cells without her knowledge. Her cells have been used in research from the polio vaccine to numerous cancer treatments. Biomedical firms have made millions selling her cells for research, but her family has never been compensated. In a sad irony, some of her descendants can't even afford health insurance
