"To give your body, to know it's going to lay on the table and people are going to dissect it, not everyone is willing to give of themselves that way," said Lynn Romrell, executive director of the state Anatomical Board, which oversees donations to Florida schools.
"Our donors realize what an important part of education it is," he
said."Many of them have suffered from an illness, and their goal in giving this gift is that others won't have to suffer." Priests, doctors, mechanics, homemakers - donors cover the spectrum of life, said Romrell, a University of Florida anatomy professor.
