  5. 5. MY SISTER’S KEEPER - SUMMARY  My Sister's Keeper is the story of Anna Fitzgerald, a "designer baby," who was genetically designed, conceived, and born to be a perfect genetic match for her older sister, Kate, who suffers from a rare childhood leukemia. At birth, Anna donates umbilical cord blood to Kate, but as Anna grows up she donates more blood, marrow, and stem cells to her sister to keep her alive. When Anna is 13, her sister enters renal failure and her parents expect Anna to donate a kidney to her sister. In response, Anna enlists the help of an attorney to sue her parents for the rights to her own body. The story follows the family's struggles as Anna sues for medical emancipation from her parents.
