If you’ve decided that body donation is right for you, there are steps you can take to help ensure your wishes are carried out. The following actions — starting with registration — will give your loved ones the gift of clarity and save them from wondering what you want during a very difficult time.
Signing up to be on the registry is the first step toward making your body donation wishes known to loved ones and friends.
The HOPE® Program for terminally-ill patients or people in hospice or palliative care is a pre-arrangement program offering a 12-month guaranteed acceptance. This gives you and your family peace of mind when you need it most (restrictions may apply).
Your loved ones will be left to coordinate your wishes. If your family does not know your wish to donate, it could negatively impact your ability to donate.
