The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

“Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. If you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they’d weigh more than 50 million metric tons—as much as a hundred Empire State Buildings. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions.”

Here you’ll find my journey and some of the discoveries my husband and I uncovered
in handling stage 4 colon cancer. We started without knowing anything about cancer.
We searched, listened, tried, failed, did it again and again.
We simply were not accepting that it was supposed to end right there,
as this was not in our plans. I’m so glad we didn’t give up,
even when the oncologist’s prognostics were less than appealing.
Things turned around and “miracle” after “miracle” occurred.
Never, ever give up, even when you’re told there’s no hope. Don’t listen.
Work toward your goal till you reach it.
The key to recovery is contained in these words from Buddha:
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
