Let's Talk About It - National organ transplant awareness week

Recommended Posts

I donated my body to medical science at age 18 years, now I’m 65 they are unlikely to want me so my kids have been told to give as much of me away as possible and negotiate a reduction of cremation fees. Sometimes people are kept ‘alive’ via life support systems when they have been certified brain dead so that donated organs are in the best possible condition for recipients

An old body can still be of use when left to medical science. Especially the brain-freezing it and then slicing it up with a band saw to be examined under a microscope.

 Observing the effects of ageing, especially in relation to types of dementia.

Should you go down the cremation route, good luck with the reduction in costs. Funeral directors are like many other  businesses, you'll still get your fingers burnt.
