Here's a straightforward last minute case...
Here's a last minute case with a waiver of the "last minute case fee"
I'm not sure when the last minute "case fee" started... but in this case there is a reference to "pre funding"...
On Jan 15th, 2009 we received the Alcor contracts from the son and the wire transfer of the cryopreservation funding was received on Feb 5th, 2009. This later date is significant as we were not able to complete any actions that incurred expenditures since pre-funding arrangements
had not been established prior to death.
This makes it appear to me that there is a possibility of creating a PRE-FUND situation with Alcor for a PRE-ARRANGED "last minute" situation... which is the idea behind PALM cryonics.
