The Circle of Promise Initiative invites you to celebrate the life of Henrietta Lacks on Circle of Promise Day at the L.A. Care Building in Lynwood on August 1, 2019 at 9am.

Who was Henrietta Lacks?

A young mom who was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer.  A sample of her cancer cells retrieved during a biopsy were sent to Dr. George Gey's  tissue lab, her cell were the only cells to multiply in a 24-hour period.

"HeLa" cells, from the first two letters of her first and last names — are used to study the effects of toxins, drugs, hormones and viruses on the growth of cancer cells without experimenting on humans. They have been used to test the effects of radiation and poisons, to study the human genome, to learn more about how viruses work, and played a crucial role in the development of the polio vaccine.
