help a trans college student afford top surgery

hello, my name is kody and i am a 20 year old trans man who is also a full time drawing and illustration major in his second year of university. i am currently undergoing medical transition and am attempting to save up for the next life-changing, momentous step in that process: top surgery, or double mastectomy. this operation is incredibly significant for me in terms of alleviating my dysphoria and increasing my overall quality of life. i had initially settled with waiting for this operation until i had saved up a sufficient amount, although an unforeseen slew of health complications i have been experiencing as result of my primary method of chest binding has rendered this far more urgent. i have come to acknowledge that my physical health is being compromised daily and that continuing to bind in this manner is not sustainable in the long term. thus, i am going to need to undergo top surgery much sooner than expected. unfortunately, my status as a currently unemployed, full-time college student running on loans and commission work has caused the financial aspect of top surgery to be momentarily impossible for me to achieve on my own. due to this, i am requesting any donation you can afford to give, no matter how small. this will make a world of difference for me. my gratitude for your generosity is something i cannot put into words. if you cannot afford to donate, i’d deeply appreciate if you would boost this fund to spread awareness. thank you :)
