Chapter 23 28 Essay

2064 words - 9 pages

in chapter 23, Bobbette learns from her brother-in-law that part of Henrietta is still alive. Her cells are being used in laboratories all around the world and Bobbette had no clue. She raced home telling Lawrence and Day her news. It didn't make sense how was part of Henrietta still alive after all this time. They had seen her being buried, did someone did up the body? Or maybe it was from the autopsy? In June 1973 at Yale the first steps toward the Human Genome Project was held. One of the main problems was the HeLa contamination but in order to sort everything out they needed to test for the specific markers which they needed Lacks family cooperation. Victor McKusick, one of the scientist to first publish Henrietta's name, worked at John Hopkins so he could get the information to contact the family. With access to the family cells it would allow HeLa to be studied in a new way. With accents and education as barriers when a Hopkins assistant called Day said yes because why refuse a doctor. Years later Howard Jones admitted that not enough effort to tell the Lacks family and because they were only taking blood samples no consent forms were needed. The family assumed that since it was a doctor that the tests were needed. Deborah was especially worried since her thirtieth birthday neared the same age her mother died at. She worried often about getting cancer or being injected with cancer like Southam had done to people. She had read about the Tuskgee trials and was very afraid of Hopkins. When giving blood a second time Deborah met McKusick who explained some of the things her mother had done for science and gave her book that had her mother's picture in it. Susan Hsu,the woman who took the samples,said when Rebecca Skloot interviewed her that she was grateful for what Henrietta had done for science and the family should be proud. Since technology had advanced so much, Hsu also asked if they wanted to donate again she would gladly look over the DNA. In chapter 24, Micheal Rogers from Rolling Stones came to the Lacks house. He had discovered HeLa when he saw Helen Lane lives on the bathroom wall. He went to Baltimore looking up Lawrence Lacks in the phone book. On the way to the home Rogers cab was hit because of the icy streets. Deborah would later say that it was Henrietta's way of trying to stop him from going to tell her family bad news. And it was also her that caused the fire that burned Rogers house containing all of his notes on HeLa and the family. When her arrived it became obvious to Rogers that they had not been informed. He became bombarded with questions instead. It was when the article got published that the brothers along with Deborah were worried about HeLa cells since it seemed other made a profit. They blamed Hopkins and Gey for taking the cells so they could become rich. Gey never made money from the HeLa cells interested in the research aspect of science instead of the profit portion. Other made enormous profits off of...
