    LONDON — Here is the text of the letter written by a terminally ill British girl to a judge asking that her remains be frozen so that she could hope to resume her life in the future. The procedure was carried out upon her recent death:

    “I have been asked to explain why I want this unusual thing done.

    I am only 14 years old and I don’t want to die but I know I am going to die.

    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 may find a cure for my cancer and wake me up.

    I want to have this chance.

    This is my wish.”
