Henrietta Lacks (HeLa) was a black woman with cervical cancer whose cells were used without her knowledge for research in 1951 when she entered the hospital and died the same year. Her family was unaware of the research until 1975. Her tombstone, dedicated in 2010 reads in part: “her immortal cells will continue to help mankind forever.”
