The U.K. High Court has ruled that a 14-year-old girl may have her dying wish: for her body to be frozen until a cure for her cancer is found.

The teen, who died in October, wrote a letter to the judge saying: "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."

The girl's mother supported the decision, however, her father had concerns. Since the judge's decision, the teen's body has been transported to the U.S. Watch the video above for more details.
