A Smart Alternative to

Traditional End of Life Arrangements

WHOLE BODY DONATION. NO-COST CREMATION.

The gift of body donation through our partner, Science Care contributes to the advancement of treatments for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, ALS, degenerative joint disease, heart disease and much more.

Without the assistance of human body donation after death, we would not have the medical advancements that we see today.

The gift of body donation also eliminates the cost of cremation, reducing the financial obligation during an already difficult time.
