how about the one family who's wife,mother,daughter all in one had cancer and the doctor supposedly treating her was cultivating her cells and when those cancer cells started growing or multiplying he was selling them to other doctor's ...this happened i think after she died...to do research on...the family never, ever knew about til years later, sued and was truly compensated for what happened..
Henrietta Lacks / HeLa cells. Her cells making all those waves and money in the medical field and her descendants were impoverished with no health care. Glad they got compensated, smh!
yep that is her name...I did a black history month on african americans pioneers for the hospital i work at and did a report on this and other african american information which dealt with inventing, creating, finding medical inventions that paved the way for our health industry..,,Had stands in the cafeteria on all of this for people to read and take heed of what our people have done for them to work in the profession they are in now..the human resource dept had to read all of the info i had searched and typed up before i was allowed to present it..those white folks were amazed at all of the readings and congratulated me on doing excellent work..
My daughter helped me with the layout of the display...
too bad my black co=workers didn;t get involved at all..not one of those idiots...it got to me so bad when i kept hearing them talk smack of white folks to the point i said to them.."Um by the way did you ever involve yourself to help me with the black history month program here?"
their reply was ..Uh no, totally forgot, didn;t have time..blah blah blah
so I replied then..You have no right to talk about the white people here at all when you didn't lift a finger to help support BLACK HISTORY MONTH...
