I Need Ideas Attracting a "Buyer" for this "Income Stream"
Okay I bought a book titled "sell yourself to science" by jim hogshire. In the book it said that as of 1992 (that books publishing date) that a cup of bone marrow is worth $10,000. No doubt that today, 15 years later that the cost per cup of bone marrow used for transplantation has gone up.
It came in the mail last week and I read it. Then I started looking up more information on the internet about it. Turns out selling bone marrow is illegal in the US and Abroad. It floored me because as I see it if we can get paid for donating our blood plasma then we should get paid for donating bone marrow. You can only donate out of the kindness of your heart. Well I came to a quick conclusion..."the kindness of your heart doesnt get the bills paid" etc. They are both renewable resources as they keep regenerating. Money talks. Period.
Anyways being the person I am I started looking for loopholes...and guess what...
I found one.
In the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act of 2006, it states that while a person cannot "sell" their body organs (in this case its bone marrow),
in section 16.b of the UAGA, it specifically states that:
"A person may charge a reasonable amount for the removal, processing, preservation, quality control, storage, transportation, implantation, or disposal of a part."
so here's my question. How do I get someone to pay me for the removal of my bone marrow?
any ideas will help even ones that are crazy sounding (within reason here, try not to leave smart-ass remarks!)
any help on this would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!
