He was then raised by his factory worker “abuelos”, grandmother, Benita Gutierrez, and, Refugio Gutierrez, his step grandfather a construction worker. He was showed very little attention or affection as a child and his difficult childhood would become the center of his comedy. George Lopez never knew his father, never had a birthday party and has never seen a baby picture of him. He was bullied as a child due to the fact he had a large head and was the darkest kid in his class.

And though the cells had launched a multimillion-dollar industry, her family never saw any of the profits. Henrietta had three sons and two daughters which both have passed away. But the multimillion-dollar foundation has helped the Lacks’ family out by buying a hearing aid for Mrs. Lacks’ youngest son, Zakariyya; truck repairs for her middle son, Sonny; new teeth for her granddaughter Kimberly; braces for her great-granddaughter Aiyana Rodgers; and tuition, books, and fees for five of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Response I thought that the Henrietta Lacks’ story was interesting and attracted people because a lot of people could relate to losing someone to cancer. Though, had it not been for scientist taking her cells without her knowing, the search for curing a lot of diseases would still continue.

In fact members of his family thought that he was retarded early in his life since he took long before he could talk. He only managed to talk when he was four years old. However tragedy struck him early in his life as his father died when he was only seven years old. Interestingly at the same age he had caught up with other children and could do what they were capable of doing.
His recall is patchy, and he is forever wafting a questioning hand at Sarah, his second wife: 'She is my memory now.' He sporadically forgets the titles of his books, referring to The Magus as 'that Greek book I wrote a long time ago' and Daniel Martin as 'me in America'. This is probably the last interview John Fowles will do. In 1988, two years before Elizabeth, his wife of 33 years, died of cancer, he had a stroke, followed by heart surgery. Today, he is nursed at his rambling seaside refuge in Lyme Regis by Sarah, 20 years his junior , an old friend of Elizabeth's.
As a child, his family moved frequently, and he had frail health as well. “When he was young, his father died and left Bret and his mother alone.”(Online-Literature.com). This was just one of the many personal issues Harte had to deal with growing up. His Formal schooling ended when he was only 13, I’m not sure if that was normal in the 1800’s or not though. This would have been very tough on a young boy in the time-frame Harte grew up in.
