Response to low-budget
$150,00. to 200,000. are the numbers I've heard; and the TW preservation is the only one I'm familiar with.
Apparently the family paid about $23,000. for transport from Florida to Alcor. No deployment, no standby or vehicle conversions.
OK, for discussion sake, say the total preservation cost was $150,000.
Can we assume $50,000. covers the preservation procedure? If so, that leaves $100,000. for liquid nitrogen. What does that cost, divided by the number of preserved?
I don't know how many "patients" Alcor has interred, but each might have this $100,000. reserve. And I doubt that money is just sitting under the bed, I imagine its invested to bring returns and cash flow.
Yes, I'd love to see a breakdown of how that $150,000. is applied, and to learn the number of patients Alcor has in Dewars. I believe it been stated Alcor has about 3 million in it's patient trust? That money must be generating some pretty nice cash flow...
