If cremation cost becomes a burden, an additional end-of-life option, is whole-body donation, which allows one to donate their body to advance medical science and make an impact on everyday lives. Whole-body donation is an altruism option, and the individual is cremated after the gift is utilized.
There are several benefits of whole-body donation which includes advancing medical science and supporting patient outcomes that enhance everyday lives. A further benefit is that whole-body donation covers the costs associated with the removal from the place of passing, transportation to one of our facilities, two certified copies of the death certificate and cremation costs.
Cremated remains are returned to the family within 4-6 weeks and all cremations are performed by a licensed crematory.
United Tissue Network is a nonprofit 501c3, AATB accredited, whole-body donation company. Our mission is to empower people who want to make a difference through whole-body donation by uniting them with professionals dedicated to the advancement of medical technology training and education.
