Family Prepared to Have Bodies Frozen

Can a Wisconsin family be brought back to life in the future?

A man in Wisconsin has signed up for himself, his wife and their three sons to all be cryogenically frozen after they pass away, according to the Daily Mail in "Father spends $140,000 to sign his whole family up to be frozen in cooling chambers when they die, in the hope they can be woken up in the future, to have a 'second chance at life'."

Their hope is that someday scientists will be able to unfreeze them, bring them back to life and cure whatever it was they died from.

Most experts would say this is an impossibility because the freezing process damages the brain. However, those who support cryogenics have faith that future scientists can fix that.

Whatever your opinion of cryogenics and its potential effectiveness, you probably should think of death as still inevitable. You are going to pass away and perhaps your family can benefit from an estate plan now.

Reference: Daily Mail (Dec.18, 2017) "Father spends $140,000 to sign his whole family up to be frozen in cooling chambers when they die, in the hope they can be woken up in the future, to have a 'second chance at life'."
