I chose to write my Cultural Reflection assignment on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. This book is about a young African-American woman, Henrietta Lacks, whose cancer cells played an important role in medical research since they were collected in 1951. When Henrietta was in her early thirties, she felt a lump on her cervix and decided to go to the doctor when she started experiencing unexplained vaginal bleeding. This doctor tested the lump for syphilis, but the test came back negative. He instructed her to go to the gynecology clinic at John Hopkins, which was the only hospital within miles of her home that treated “colored” patients.
Henrietta Lacks was a young black woman who was diagnosed with cervical cancer at John Hopkins Hospital. Her doctor collected cancerous cells and healthy cells from her cervix and gave them to the cancer researcher, George Otto Gey, who was trying to keep cells alive for more than a couple days. Henrietta endured intense radium treatments, but she still died at the age of 31, leaving her husband and five children behind. An amazing discovery was made Henrietta’s cell were immortal. Racism is prevalent in this book through the limited availability of healthcare, unethical behaviors of the doctors, and how racism affected her family.
She survived the death of her first love and even though afterwards she loved again she was a changed person, colder and more focused on personal gains that anything else. What would she have been like if Caesar wouldn’t have been murdered? How would History look like if Octavian’s Admiral Agrippa would have worked for the opposite side? We will never know but what we do know is, that Cleopatra is one of the most well-known and inspiring Women in history. The myths and secrets that surround her make her and the courage that she showed during her lifetime even more
I did review her ECHO report that she had not heard from and we are very pleased with the normal ejection fraction. We also discussed her foot. I will try to get her an orthopaedic surgeon here at UT who may be willing to look at her foot while she is pregnant. I did order a left foot x-ray in the event that this may help them make decisions and we will get her a referral here at UT for an orthopaedic surgeon. She is otherwise scheduled to return in 4 weeks in our office for ongoing evaluation of fetal growth due to a history of postpartum pericardium cardiomyopathy.
Some people suppose that beauty of Cleopatra was exaggerated and that her charm was attributed only to strength of character and mental charisma. However, it doesn’t really matter. No doubt that Cleopatra was an influential figure in the history of the world and it doesn’t matter how she did it. Maybe with the help of her beauty or with the help of her mind they both plays a role of influence to how people view her in society. Cleopatra will always have an outstanding personality despite the fact that she is being criticized by a lot men and women.

Even though Charlotte was not the most beautiful woman, she found abundant success in her talents. The Victorian era placed a woman’s value in how much money and beauty she possessed. In Charlotte Bronte’s coming of age novel, Jane Eyre, outward beauty deceives as it ironically represents a true evil in oneself. The beautiful Reed family, who resides at Gateshead, has cruel hearts as they boast about their luxuries as they deny them to their “outsider” blood. Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a
It is a long process to become a Pediatric Oncologist, but with the dedication and drive that I have been wanting to become one, it won 't be that difficult. I think when wanting to become an Oncologist, you must have the pride in yourself and in wanting to succeed and strive for better. The reason why I would want to become a Pediatric Oncologist, is because my family background has a lot of cancer. Which means that it is genetic. My aunt was previously diagnosed with Breast Cancer, they were able to detect it on its dormant stage, which means the cancer is slowed down or asleep.

It is hard to say for sure but it is estimated that seventeen to thirty years could have been added to her life. By the '90s it is discovered that Atossa has a gene mutation so her daughters are also tested as a way to get ahead of the invasive breast cancer. Theoretically, in 2050 a flash drive and a computer may detect every mutation in every gene; targeted drugs will likely be administered to Atossa for the rest of her
Robin thanked God, her family, and friends for helping her beat breast cancer. Five years later, she was faced with another health battle.
