Terminally ill girl pleads not to bury her after death, court grants wish.

An anonymous teenager has been preserved to fulfil her dying wish,after a ruling by the judge in favour of her.The 14-year-old girl who died from cancer was cryogenically frozen so she could potentially be revived in the future. Her mother supported the girl's request but a letter the girl wrote to the judge is thought to have played a key role in the High Court's decision. Here is what she wrote to Mr Justice Jackson: “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 cryo‐preserved 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.”A potential future demonstration of the ability to cryopreserve human organs for transplantation would be a major first step into proving the concept, but at the moment scientists are not upto it.
