    After giving birth in a pigsty, she kills herself and the baby by drowning in the family well. As a result, members of Henrietta Lacks's family received solicitations for blood samples from researchers hoping to learn about the family's genetics in order to differentiate between HeLa cells and other cell lines. Overall in the memoir, there is a movement from silence in the first line of the first chapter — "You must not tell anyone" — to language in the last line of the last chapter — "It translated well. She can only have one, maybe two children a year. Kelly again denies any and all wrong doing and is taking appropriate legal action to protect himself from ongoing defamation. Success is very fungible.
