  • Henrietta ended up with her grandfather, Tommy Lacks, living in an old slave shack on a tobacco plantation with her older cousin David "Day" Lacks. They called it the "home-house."She and her cousins spent their youth taking care of farm animals and tending the tobacco fields. They grew up extremely poor, but their grandparents took care of them.Henrietta would sometimes go to the tobacco market to sell the crop with her grandfather. It was a treat for her and the cousins to get out of town.

  • Henrietta had been in pain since she'd given birth to her fourth child, Deborah. She assumed it had something to do with childbirth or maybe from a sexually transmitted disease brought to her by her husband, who slept around a lot.She'd told her cousins Sadie and Margaret about the knot, but no one else. They told her it might be a pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy), but Henrietta knew it wasn't that.
