Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for looking into helping me.

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Colton Cuthbertson and I am a 23 year old transgender male. It's been almost  two years since I began my transition from female to male. I've been on hormone replacement therapy now for a year now. 

The next step now to becoming who I really am is undergoing top surgery, which is the removal of the breasts and masculinisation of the chest. 


I spent a great deal of time researching all options for surgery available in Canada. Although the Alberta government does fund this surgery, I have decided to have it done with Dr. Hugh McLean in Mississauga, Ont. 


This is arguably one of the most important decisions I will make in my life and because of that, I want to put trust into the hands of a highly reputable surgeon with proven results.

For a list of his credentials, see http://www.mcleanclinic.com/about-us/dr-hugh-mclean/

For more information on top surgery, see http://www.mcleanclinic.com/breast/ftm-top-surgery/

The cost of his surgery is $7400.00, I am looking to raise $8000.00 to help out with some extra costs such as flights and hotel, as I will have to stay out there for at least 10 days. 

Thank you for taking the time to read about my story. Any little bit helps.

I was also happy to be involved in a documentry earlier this year discussing the different gender identities if you would like to view I have included the link below
