Health Corner: The Final Gift
With the recent passing of my Dear Old Uncle Bill, I am the last of my blood line. Fortunately I have informally adopted by at least one or two younger families despite my apparent and real lack of worldly goods. And my incredible return from The Other Side in April 2016 notwithstanding, final plans can be an expensive headache to those we leave behind.
WikiHow explains in three steps how donating one’s organs or body to science is not only a remarkable and lasting gift, but can eliminate the cost of one’s final disposition. Forms must be filed beforehand, specific conditions vary, and unforeseen circumstances may disqualify you - serious accident, specific contagious diseases, etc. Typically the choice must be either organ donation or whole body.
Parting.com weighs the pros & cons of organ donation versus whole body, noting “most medical schools do allow you to donate your eyes without jeopardizing a full body donation.” Return of your ashes is offered by many medical school programs.
HuffPo posted a column from The Savvy Senior including links to three private organizations accepting whole body donations. One plants a tree in honor of each donor. And “you can always change your mind by revoking your authorization in writing.”
Some fields of research benefitting from body donation are:
- neurology studies
- thoracic studies
- alzheimer's research
- multiple sclerosis research
Perhaps I do have a small legacy that would benefit future generations.
As always, YMMV.*
