Dying for a Funeral Alternative?

A unique alternative to traditional funerals is to consider donating your body to science. This decision virtually eliminates costly funeral expenses that the surviving family members would have to pay. Each state has specific criteria that must be followed and it is best to contact your local hospital, medical college, or university in order to find out what the rules are and if there are any necessary forms to fill out in order to ensure that your final wishes are fulfilled. Bear in mind that most hospitals and universities will not accept cadavers with missing limbs or persons that have died of infectious diseases. Although this is a difficult decision to make, it is one that can benefit science in the long run. More info: funeral alternatives
