I hate hate hate putting this on Facebook, but at this point I have no choice.  My husband's final wishes were to donate his body to medical science.  I have been trying for months to make this happen, but most places won't talk to you until your loved one is in his final hours of life. Well today, I called again and told them he is in his final hours of life and could we start the process?  We started the phone interview and because he once had Hep C they can not honor his wishes. Broken hearted does not even come close to describing what I feel right now. Not only can I not carry out his final wishes, I have no money to cremate or bury him.   The last few years have been very financially hard on us.  So, it's with a heavy heart that I must ask family and friends for help!  My husband will probably not be alive by the weekend. And when he passes I will need 800.00 just as a down payment to have him cremated. If I don't have the money, then he will be put on ice and I will be charged daily until I have the funds. I am so sorry but I just don't have the resources for this, much less my bills.  If anyone could please help so he doesn't have to sit on ice for God knows how long, I would be eternally grateful. I have been taking care of him for the past 3 years and couldn't work because leaving him alone was such a danger.  I can't pay anyone back for quite awhile, but if you can find it in your heart to help me cremate the love of my life, I will get you paid one day, I promise. Please don't respond here, but private message me with any help you have to offer.  Please pray for us!

After 2 days of back and forth with doctors and the stall at OU, we are. It going to be able to donate his body to science. As sad as we are over this news, we are at the same time comforted that he will finally be at peace and rest. 

Thank you you everyone who donated, we have most of the money needed for his cremation.  Only short about 100.00.  The Lord has blessed us in so many ways thanks to all of you!!

My best friend, my husband and one of the finest men I ever knew, passed away this morning.  He will be cremated as we were unable to donate his body.   He was surrounded by love, family and friends. I just want to thank everyone for your kind words, support and donations.

First, Thank you everyone for your kind words of support and for your donations!  

I am determined to carry out my husbands last wishes and have found an avanue that may allow me to just that.  I have contacted Oklahoma State University and spoke with someone in their body donation department.  Even with his health history they may accept him.  But final acceptance won't happen until he has passed.    
Should he he be accepted all moneys donated will be returned.  
We are so blessed to have the support of all of you.
