White and yellow chrysanthemums stand in front of the “Life” memorial monument.Every year, the Beijing Red Cross will hold a memorial service here to pay tribute to the “teachers” who let life shine its last light.Yao Zitong, who works at Capital Medical University, said goodbye to her father last year.Her father’s sudden death was hard for her for a long time;The only consolation was that, a few years ago, she agreed to let her father register as a body donor.”My father started thinking about his death after my grandfather died.My father felt that there was no point in living up to ostentation after death;It would be nice to have a happy family and something tangible to contribute to when you’re gone.”He zhensheng, 95, has also long wanted to donate his body.When the old man accidentally read the newspaper, he learned that even in big cities like Beijing, cadaver resources for medical dissection are very scarce, usually dozens of students share a cadaver autopsy study.He zhensheng discussed with his family to donate his body after 100 years.At first, my family, including my wife, disagreed.The old man persuaded his family by presenting facts and reasoning, and went through the registration procedure for body donation with his wife at Peking University Health Science Center.In 2013, his wife’s body was donated after she passed away.Now, he zhensheng’s aunt also plans to donate his body.”It is my last wish to make a modest contribution to the medical cause of my country.”He Zhensheng said.According to Li Baofeng, party secretary and executive vice president of the Beijing Red Cross, the city has set up three stations — Peking Union Medical College, Peking University Health Science Center and Capital Medical University — to register donated bodies, which are responsible for the specific acceptance of body donation, medical teaching and scientific research.By the end of 2021, more than 28,000 people had registered as volunteers for body donation, and nearly 4,000 people had donated their bodies.”I hope that more people of insight will pay attention to, understand, understand and support this cause.”Li baofeng said.(Reporter Niu Weikui) (original title: nearly 30,000 people in the city registered body donation to send out the last light of life) Statement: This article copyright belong to the original author, if there is a source of error or infringement of your legitimate rights and interests, you can contact us through the mailbox, we will promptly deal with.Email address:
