Super Feedback from a Family Member

Awww, this feedback today really touched the Family Services Team:
“I received a post card from you telling me to stay in touch, so I’m staying in touch! I’m glad you sent this because I just wanted to say thank you so much for taking care of my brother. What I found very interesting is the fact that he wasn’t registered before he passed. I was able to register him and made sure his remains got sent to the proper place… your place helped me a lot. He passed in IL and I am all the way in AZ. You made it easy and I’m comfortable to say that I can’t wait to come to you when my time comes! “

Thank you for those kind words!

Middle Ear Implant Technology Brings Sound to Texas Mother of Two

Science Care serves as the link between those that wish to donate their body to medical science and the researchers and educators that need human tissue to advance medicine. Donors participate in various life enhancing projects ranging from cancer treatment to heart valve repair to minimally invasive hip replacement research and surgical training.  To help illustrate the real life impact of donation on people today, Science Care recently asked Sarah Churman, 30, about her personal experiences receiving a revolutionary middle ear implant device to improve her lifelong genetic hearing loss. Whole body donors aid in the development of such technology and in the training of surgeons performing these types of procedures.  Sarah, a mother and wife living with her family in Texas has dealt with deafness her entire life. Her specific type of hearing loss is a genetic abnormality that was discovered at about 18 months of age.
