Cancer striken teenager becomes the first British to win the right to return from the dead


The big C is a word nobody wants to be associated with or even hear. It has claimed a lot of lives and put many families in mystery. I love this slogan I saw the other day ' I wish cancer can get cancer and die'. That will actually be great if it happens. Hopefully one day it will come to pass.
 
 A 14-year-old girl went through a lot and finally  died from cancer. She has become the first British child to be cryogenically frozen after a judge agreed to her dying wish so that one day she could 'be cured and woken up'.
 
Dailymail gathered that the teenager cannot be named but died last month and is now in a 'cryostat' tank at around -196C (-321F) inside the Michigan-based Cryonics Institute, it can be reported for the first time.  

She was at the centre of a fierce legal battle between her divorced parents - with her mother agreeing to her wish to be frozen while her estranged father refused because of its £37,000 cost and the brutal process of preserving her.
 
During the landmark case she wrote an extraordinary letter to a judge while on her death bed. It read:
 
'I AM ONLY 14 AND I DON'[T WANT TO DIE BUT I KNOW I AM GOING TO': DYING GIRL'S INCREDIBLE LETTER BEGGING TO BE FROZEN'
 
 
She continued 'I want to live and live longer and I think that in the future they may find a cure for my cancer and wake me up.
'I want to have this chance. This is my wish.' 
 
Justice Jackson said that she died peacefully knowing she would be frozen and discussed the arrangements before on the day she died. 
 
After agreeing, High Court judge Mr Justice Jackson, who visited the girl's bedside shortly before her death on October 17, said the terminally ill she died peacefully knowing that her remains would be frozen.
 
The judge said he had been moved by the 'valiant way' in which she had faced her 'predicament'. 

Her body has been flown to America and she has since slowly been chilled over two to three weeks in Liquid Nitrogen and stored next to around 150 other bodies.
 
She is in one of America's two main cryo-facilities - the Cryonics Institute near Detroit - where its founder Robert Ettinger was frozen with two of his wives when he died aged 92.Around 250 people have been frozen in the same process spending as much as £150,000 before dying.
