Joined in life. Connected by faith.

When a family is faced with losing a loved one, they often reach out to their faith leader for spiritual guidance and to ask about their faith's perspective on organ, eye and tissue donation. When faith leaders encourage their members to learn the facts and to register their donation decision before a family crisis, the burden of making a decision is lessened. Below are ways Lifeline of Ohio can support you with free resources.

Whole Body Donation

The gift of whole body donation is facilitated through anatomical gift programs, medical school departments of anatomy, or schools of medicine, not through organ procurement organizations.

Each whole body donation program has their own donation process and oftentimes an individual must pre-arrange an agreement with the program for full body donation to take place. Each program has different requirements and criteria, including whether or not an individual can donate organs, tissues and/or corneas prior to their acceptance into the whole body donation program.
