Living Testimonials.

We were first introduced to Anatomy Gifts Registry (AGR) by our father who, upon being diagnosed with stage four colon cancer, registered with AGR. Like an old friend with experience and wisdom who knows just what to say, AGR comforted us through their kindness and professionalism.

Annette N.

Even when I just needed to talk to someone they were there to listen or lend a shoulder to cry on. And for that I will be forever grateful.

Nancy E.

Both Stefanie and Kristin were kind, compassionate, responsive, and informative-they were incredibly helpful and caring at a very difficult time for the family.

Walter N.

Everyone was very considerate, kind, and reassuring that my mother would be lovingly taken care of.

Mareia W.

It meant the world to my uncle that he could be a donor like his mother was. He was so proud and told everyone he made that decision.

Kari F.

Thanks so much for taking one of the more difficult aspects of death off our shoulders in a way that helps others so importantly.

COVID-19 NoticeLast Updated 1/7/2021

During this period, AGR has, for the most part, resumed routine operations. However, it is important to note that under all circumstances, the acceptance of any deceased person is contingent upon meeting AGR’s current donor safety and suitability criteria at the time of death (whether already enrolled in the registry or not). Donor acceptance criteria are subject to change. There may be additional considerations for donor eligibility during unprecedented times, such as this period with the current COVID-19 pandemic. For example, past or present infection with COVID-19, or possessing symptoms related to the disease, may impact a donor’s eligibility.
