COVID-19 resulted in fewer donations for Genesis Legacy Whole Body Donation Foundation, a non-transplant anatomic donation organization that shares space with the Medical Education & Research Institute.
I am a registered organ donor. I have the little heart on my driver’s license. When I die, I am done with my body. Give my organs to someone who needs them. Whatever works is up for grabs. I am an organ donor 💜❤️. If you are an organ donor, please copy. Also, I’m curious to see how many of my friends are donors. #donatelife

I have also donated my body to science. Genesis Legacy of Life Medical Education & Research Institute
