it was ok
Read in February, 2012

I had never heard of the HeLa cells and I liked all of the information about the cells. I was disconcerted over the collection of Henrietta's cells and of the other research and specimen collection of other patients without their consent. I was much less interested in the story of Harrietta's family. I wish they had been given some restitution from the collection and distrubution of Henrietta's cells, but I wasn't really compelled to learn about the family.
