14-year-old girl who died of cancer wins approval to be cryogenically preserved.

A British high court approved the 14-year-old girl’s wish, to be preserved at a cryonics facility in the United States.

Her father was opposed with the process.

Girl’s remains will be cryopreserved at the Cryonics Institute near Detroit, Michigan.

The teen’s father said at the court:

“I respect the decisions

[my daughter] is making. This is the last and only thing she has asked from me.”

The teen just before her death sent this plea to the court:

“I have been asked to explain why I want this unusual thing done. I’m only 14 years old and I don’t want to die, but I know I am going to. I think being cryopreserved gives me a chance to be cured and woken up, even in hundreds of years’ time. I don’t want to be buried underground. I want to live and live longer and I think that in the future they might find a cure for my cancer and wake me up. I want to have this chance. This is my wish.”

Is there life after death? People are looking right here in Michigan. More and more people are being cryogenically frozen in the hopes of one day getting a second chance at life. It may sound like science fiction, but reporter Jennifer Ann Wilson says it could change the future of medical science.
