@ijesuschrist, Well, from what the article says, she’s unique since her cells replicate without ever stopping outside the human body forever. They’ve been doing this for 60 years approximately.
She was dying from cancer and the doctor that was treating her took a cell sample, he recognized what her cells were doing and kept them without her consent. Now they’re used in most research since they have such a large supply of these cells since they’ve been replicating for so long.
An interesting trait of her cells is that they can be frozen, and then defrosted later and they’ll just go back to replicating.
