Give one copy to your legal next of kin, keep a second copy with your valuable papers, and mail a third copy to your family physician.
You may, at any time, revise or revoke your donation. Completing a donation form does not, in any way, comprise a contract. It is only a statement of the your wishes and intentions. You should notify the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, in writing if possible, if you wish to change anything.
It is a very good idea to inform your relatives of the decision to donate your body. It is the policy of the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University not to accept a donated body if the nearest living relative objects. Next of kin are the legal custodians of a deceased relative's body. You are therefore encouraged to make your donation known to your family, close friends, minister, and attorney. If you have a Will, you should include a statement regarding the donation. However, the best way to have your wishes honored is to carry your donor card at all times and to inform your legal next of kin of your wishes.
