In 1951 Henrietta Lacks died from #cervicalcancer at the age of 31, just 8 months after the diagnosis. Although her life was cut short, her legacy lives on through an “immortal” line of #HeLaCells. Join us to commemorate her story—one of inequity— & her enduring legacy.

World Health Organization (WHO): Join us celebrate the world-changing legacy of Henrietta Lacks, whose #HeLaCells enable medical breakthroughs – from HPV, polio vaccines to #COVID19 research.
Join us & the @LacksFamily honouring her legacy & calling for #HealthEquity around the world.
