In 1951, Henrietta Lacks went to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment for her cervical cancer. Without her family's knowledge, cells from her tumour were taken and used by researchers there. Subsequently, they made a ground-breaking discovery with them, but her family didn't learn about any of it until decades later. Joining us for an update on the family's quest for compensation in this matter is Henrietta Lacks' great- granddaughter, Victoria Baptiste, a nurse specializing in diabetic care from Baltimore, who is also part of HeLa100, her family's year-long outreach and education campaign to honour her.
