How Does Body Donation Help Families?

In a recent survey by the University of Rochester, "families reported that body donation could allow them to see that “something positive could come out of [their] loss,” that “someone else would have a better life,” and that, in a way, “[their] family member lives on.” This idea of paying life forward, and having something beautiful come out of their tragedy, is certainly compelling. It can be something encouraging to cling to in those first difficult days, months, even years" after the loss of a loved one.
