Click to read my original PLEA for body donation. Please.


This sensationalistic headline in the U.K. Daily Mail is unnecessary!

Why would YOU care what happens to your body after you die?

PLEASE donate it to science — let them do whatever. Why do YOU care.
Feel good about it, instead.

This, from the same article, says it all.

What MORE do YOU want to hear or know.

Please donate. This is one of the dearest causes to my heart.
One of the BEST decisions I ever made.
That the person who ‘inspired’ me to do this RENEGED on it, when he died, only shows how IMPORTANT it is.
My ‘grandfather‘ (though probably not biologically) did this and asked ALL males in the family to do so.
None have so far, because his own son didn’t heed the request. So I will be the first — I HOPE.

One student said: ‘Books and models are all very well and good but you don’t see what it’s like, you don’t get to feel what it’s like. Dissecting a cadaver is the only way to actually learn’ …”

Just for the record I am not a financial donor to the President, the Democratic Party or any candidate, though I have given plenty of time, lots of food, use of our vehicles and Internet bandwidth to the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I think they have my name and address from 2008. Though we did a fair amount of campaigning this year, I don’t think that I ever registered my name or signed in at the office when we did a shift. They just kind of knew me.
