Online Directory Lists Anatomical Donation Programs in U.S. Offering Free Cremations
Date:6/2/2008

Site designed as a resource on willed body programs that aid medical

research and education

LOS ANGELES, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Cremations4free.com (http://www.cremations4free.com), a willed body to science anatomical donation is currently the fastest-growing trend among traditional burial or cremation death options. And, in these uncertain economic times, anatomical donation can relieve the financial burdens associated with the death of a loved one.

Willed body programs process, store and distribute organs, tissue or specimens to help make medical research and education possible through well-known and respected companies and institutions across the country. Dave Kazmar, of In The Vault, Inc. -- the company that runs the online directory -- said the site is not affiliated with any of the donor programs listed; it's merely a clearinghouse for information.

The site points out that willed body programs abide by the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act (UAGA), the National Organ Transplant Act prohibiting the buying or selling of human organs or tissues, the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations Title 45, Part 46, protecting donor confidentiality.

The FAQ area addresses concerns raised by those considering anatomical donation and by their families. For instance, there are no costs associated with the donation process. Most individuals can be considered a candidate for donation regardless of age or state of health. Organ donors also can participate in the anatomical donation program. However, donors with active communicable diseases (such as viral hepatitis, HIV/AIDS or tuberculosis) cannot donate.

Following is a list of the more common medical research endeavors that most willed body programs support (A comprehensive list is available at Cremations4free.com):

-- Alzheimer's disease

-- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's)

-- Arthritis

-- Bipolar disorder

-- Cancer

-- Diabetic neuropathy

-- Multiple sclerosis

-- Muscular dystrophy

-- Osteoporosis

-- Parkinson's

-- Schizophrenia

Cremations4free.com also allows individuals who have chosen anatomical donation and now have available cemetery property to list it at no cost. They may sell directly to those who are interested in purchasing cemetery plots. Cremations4free is not involved in any of the transactions or negotiations. The site also lists companies that scatter ashes by plane or by boat.

"Support the advancement of medical science through whole body donation and leave a legacy of hope for this and future generations," said Vladimir A. Sarlat, executive director of Life Quest Anatomical of Allentown, PA. "Every aspect of the donor process -- including all transportation, paperwork and a free cremation -- is managed by caring, courteous and professional staff members. All at no cost."

"Anatomical donation can provide a meaningful closure to the grieving family," said Kazmar.

Future site features include having cremation urns available for purchase. For more information, visit http://www.cremations4free.com or email info@cremations4free.com.
