Watched the zombie movie I heard of from another thread and the character in a way reminded me of herhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lackshttp://rebeccaskloot.com/the-immortal-life/
"Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a
poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in
1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for
developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro
fertilization, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by
the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t
afford health insurance."
