HeLa Ch. 8

2. Henrietta’s doctors reacted to intuitive conviction that  the cancer was spreading inside her bitterly. From the notes they took of her reactions to the treatment, I assume they thought she was over reacting.

7. The use of “miserable specimen” by Henrietta’s doctors reveal their attitude toward Henrietta as bitter and uncaring.

9. If Gey did speak to Henrietta just before she died I think that Henrietta probably would have understood what immortal cells meant. Henrietta wasn’t stupid, she probably would have understood with a little explanation. Henrietta deserved to know, after all.
