Donated organs and tissues give life and sight, teach researchers how the brain works, provide drugs for fighting cancer, and allow us to master the very genes that define us as human. (Swerdlow, 1989)
Preparation of this article was supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Contract number NO1-HD-1-3138. Gratitude is expressed to all families who in their time of grief donate organs and tissues to benefit future generations.
