Henrietta's younger daughter Deborah offers a first-person account of being the daughter of the woman who provided HeLa cells.
It's clear that Deborah knows only a little bit about her mother's role in the scientific research done with HeLa cells in the decades since Henrietta's death; no one really took the time to explain it all to her.
She also voices her frustration over the exploitation of Henrietta's family in the manufacture and selling of HeLa cells.
Deborah points out the irony of people unrelated to the family making a ton of money off her mother when the family can't afford any of the medical advances the cells made possible.
But Deborah isn't after money. She just wants to learn more about the mother she never knew.
