Since my condition (PML) is rare ... I was wondering if it would be helpful to donate my body to science.
How does one go about finding more information about this? Once gone, I won't need this body anyway ... I will have a brand new one ... better, and MOST beautiful.
Seems this could benefit someone ... if not to find out more about PML, to learn how these manifestations appear in the brain and body. Or simply to teach medical students the basics? Perhaps they don't need donations of deceased persons, or only specific ones. I may not even be a candidate.
As for my family and loved ones, there would be a memorial service (without my body) and my body could go straight to the science lab (or whatever they refer to this place as); however, they (my family) are in support of this only as long as the remains are returned for burial when they complete whatever they like that could be helpful (and realize this may mean a long wait). If my family cannot have my remains returned to the final resting place of our choosing, they do not want me to follow through on this.
Also, I am an organ donor; I don't even know if they would want my organs now (PML? diseased?) ... but I am going to ask.
Does anyone have any information about how to go about finding out this information? I'll research if/as my time/energy allows, but while I'm here ... doesn't hurt to ask.
