The Henrietta Lacks Foundation provides financial assistance to individuals and families who were involved in historic research cases without their knowledge, consent, or benefit.  This includes the cases of Henrietta Lacks and HeLa cells, the Tuskeegee Syphilis Studies, The Human Radiation Experiments, among others. The Foundation offers those who have benefited from those contributions — including scientists, universities, corporations, and the general public — a way to show their appreciation to such research subjects and their families.
