6. Most Important to the Story
The element that is most important to the story is the character. Henrietta is the main character because it is about doctors using her cells for research. The book explains everything that occurred. It also describes all the medicines and advancements used today. The character helped all this happen even though her family might not have been treated fairly. Before the use of her cells doctors attempted this on other cells, but it never worked. With the use of the cells new medicines have been invented to help people stay healthy.
