CHANGE THE FUTURE OF MEDICINE
As an alternative to traditional burial, funeral, or cremation, Science Care’s whole body donation program offers the chance to make a contribution that benefits others. By providing a vital service and a pathway to greater knowledge and discovery, together we can help save lives, advance medical research and education, and improve quality of life for families and the community.
Many people meet criteria for donation, including people with cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Please note that the final determination if an individual matches current research criteria is based on medical and suitability factors at the time of passing, in order to honor the intent of donation and safely serve the needs of the medical community. Exclusions may include contagious diseases, extreme obesity, and extensive orthopedic surgeries.
- Upon acceptance, Science Care covers all costs of donation, including cremation, transportation, filing of the death certificate and the return of cremated remains.
A GUARANTEE FOR HOSPICE PATIENTS AND THE TERMINALLY ILL
- The Science Care Hope™ Program is a pre-screening program that allows patients, families, and healthcare providers to know with certainty if a donor meets current research criteria before the time of passing. This gives your family peace of mind when it’s needed most.
