We provide opportunities for some patients and families to arrange to donate tumor tissue to research. It’s the “organ donation” option for patients with cancer.
We can also make arrangements to donate brain tissue to research for patients with certain neurologic conditions. These include ALS, MS, Parkinson’s disease, Lewy Body disease, psychiatric conditions and others. Learn about the Chicago Brain Registry.
Talk to us. We understand that families want to make a difference after a loss. This is especially true after seeing their loved one experience an illness for which there may be little treatment and no cure. Donation is always free of charge.
