help me to get top surgery

hi :) thanks for taking the time to click on my gofundme, i really appreciate it! update is posted at the bottom. anyways,

i'm casey, i'm 22 years old & i live in england! i am transgender, more specifically agender, which falls under the nonbinary umbrella & meaning gender-less... i am not male or female. just me!

i experience something called gender dysphoria, which means that i feel hugely uncomfortable and distressed about some aspects of my body, which for me is primarily my chest.

this is why top surgery would be so beneficial for me.

i have been out as trans for about 5 years now.

i have changed my name legally to casey.

the reason i have created this gofundme is because i cannot afford the full amount for private top surgery by myself, which is something that would improve my life more than i can put into words.

i thought i was on the NHS waiting list for the gender identity clinic, however upon phoning them today i have been informed that they haven't received the referral.

if i was to be re-referred now, it would take 36 months to get an INTIAL appointment with them. that doesn't include the years it would take to get top surgery.

honestly, i don't think i can wait that long. i feel absolutely crushed every time i look in the mirror or have a shower etc. i use a binder, to flatten my chest which you are supposed to only wear for 8 hours a day. i often wear it for days (and nights) on end and eventually have to take it off due to pains from it.

i would really, really appreciate any donations or shares. it would seriously mean the world to me!

ive held off from making this for so long due to the fear of what others will think. but... i'm taking a deep breath and doing what's right for me.

i'm aware there are other things going on in the world right now. but this is really, really important to me.

i have decided to go with a surgeon called dr. lembas in poland. his results are great and the price is much more of an obtainable goal than the uk surgeons. once i have reached my goal, i will be contacting the surgeon and will be posting updates on my instagram and facebook!

my best friend, georgia will be coming with me to poland to support me :)

i am putting my own money towards this as well. this fundraiser is to cover the rest that i cannot afford.

thank you for reading!! ***EDIT 14/01/2021*** hey folx! as you may have noticed i've changed the fundraising goal! new developments have been made and i am now not going to be able to go to poland to get surgery; there are a number of reasons for this and if you'd like to know more feel free to message me on instagram @ mx.magic i will now be going with the London Transgender Clinic mr. Inglefield, his results are awesome and he is very size inclusive. my aim is to fund the two assessments and referrals myself, along with my surgery consultation. i will be putting everything i have into saving for the actual surgery itself too, but being unable to work it would take me years to save up. which is why i have created this gofundme so that if others want to or are in a position to help out, they can. and i'm beyond grateful for this! this surgery is so important to me and many other trans folx, it will completely change my life! anyways... i'm rambling now. thank you for reading! have a great day casey
