I januari 1951 diagnosticerades Henrietta Lacks med cancer. Knappt nio månader senare avled hon. Men de cellprov som hennes läkare tog lever fortfarande. De har gett upphov till minst tre Nobelpris, de låg till grund för poliovaccinet, de har varit på månen. I dag finns det 17 000 patent baserade på Henrietta Lacks celler. Ett provrör med HeLa-celler kostar 256 dollar. Men Henrietta Lacks familj har aldrig fått ett öre i ersättning.

Den odödliga Henrietta Lacks är en storartad berättelse om vetenskapens fantastiska förmåga att övervinna sjukdomar och skapa ett bra liv för oss alla. Men också en tragisk historia om krocken mellan medicin, etik och ras. Och inte minst djupt en skakande berättelse om en dotter, som förtärdes av frågor om den mor hon aldrig fick lära känna. Utgiven av StorySide.
