CAN I CHANGE MY MIND?

Pursuant to N.C.G.S. §130A-412.8 and N.C.G.S. §130A-412.12 a donor or an authorized representative may revoke an anatomical gift at any time prior to death in writing and by submitting the revocation to High Point University’s Willed Body Program. Upon receiving the written revocation, the decision to revoke the gift takes place immediately, and the Willed Body Program will remove the donors name from the active donor registry. 

Once procedures to prepare a donor for the program begin, a donation cannot be revoked by any survivors or legally authorized person(s), and no contractual terms of the document of gift can be changed.


*  N.C.G.S. § 130A-412.11 provides for the following classes of persons to donate a body for educational purposes in order of priority listed:
(1) An agent of the decedent to the extent authorized under a power of attorney for health care or other record who could have made such a donation during the deceased’s life;
