I want to donate my body for medical research after death, preferrably for research into MS. There’s a bit of info on this site but not much detail; I feel a bit odd about ringing the number of the MS tissue bank and asking how I go about donating and so on. Has anyone else here pledged their bodies to science?
I want to benefit others after my death, but also I am very opposed to the outrageous cost of funerals. I consider my body to be no more than a piece of meat after death and I do not want my family to be left with a huge bill to dispose of me, as I was when my father died. For this reason I only want to donate my body to an organisation that will promise to take everything, not just samples of tissue, and it’s not clear if the MS tissue bank does this - can anyone advise?
Thanks in advance for any help
