Tissue donation is an extremely personal and private decision. The donation of brain and other tissues is a precious gift that helps to advance meaningful research to find a cure. Donating tissue does not interfere with open casket viewing. There is no financial cost to the family, and the family can reconsider the decision at any time.
To learn more please contact our Director of Family Services, Diana Jussila (formerly Pangonis) via email email@example.com. Alternatively, you can contact the following to donate frozen and/or paraffin tissue samples:
