    Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for writing on tissue donation, a topic I think is very important. I have seen the question often, and we do not respond as often.

     

    I think your level of detail is especially valuable. Good job.

    Hi Lisa,

     

    Here on the other side of the world in Israel, I made contact with the Hebrew U/Hadassah Hospital neuro dept when I receuved my dx and pledged my body (whatever they want) to MS research. I also have a donar card to contribute any usable organs to whomever might need them at the time or to organ banks. What's left after that I'd love to donate to something else, but I doubt that there'll be anything useful.

     

    Until then, I intend to enjoy every minute!

     

    Happy Passover and Easter to all!

     

    Peace & Serenity,

    Maris
