As members of the Lacks family, we are committed to upholding our mission to preserve the life and legacy of Henrietta Lacks and educate future generation on the impact of her immortal HeLa cells while promoting health equity and social justice. The Lacks Family will continue to spread the good news...Henrietta Lacks' story and her legacy. We want to raise awareness and encourage action to problems the world is facing such as poverty, unemployment, racism, ethical issues, education, communication, tissue ownership. Our family is focusing on positive aspects of Henrietta’s scientific contribution to the world. The Lacks family has moved from being victims, to victory of a proud family heritage. We truly appreciate everyone who has taken time to read “The Immortal of Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot and learn about Henrietta Lacks, her family and the HeLa cells.
Continue to keep our family in your prayers, as this journey for our mother/grandmother’s legacy continues to flourish. Remember! Henrietta Lacks is A Gift that Keeps on Giving.
We will continue to spread our positive message to schools, libraries, associations, and community organizations worldwide, ensuring that Henrietta Lacks' contributions to humanity are never forgotten.
