Hi! My name is Lexi Richardson. Thanks for checking out my page!
This is a surgery fund for my GCS (Gender Confirmation Surgery)!
I tried this once before, and I was building up some steam, but I've decided to make a new one, and close the old one down.
Here's what happened:
When I hit about the 5,000 dollar mark on my old page I lost my job. It has since been over a year since I've been employed and I wasn't able to collect unemployment at all during that time. As a result, most of the money from my previous effot is gone. Spent on food and critically needed things over the past year. I'm back to one meal a day now, and things are really tough, with me facing potential homelessness. Not to mention the government pulled my food benefits away because I had money in the bank (from this). Even though that money was spoken for, they refused help as long as it was there, and I panicked and didn't know what else to do.
I need your help to reach my goal. This time, all the money stays in GoFundMe. I won't even be entering my bank information, and I won't have the password to this account. No matter how bad things get, I can't bear to watch my fund drain away again. I need the surgery like I need air to breathe. The depression and gender dysphoria is ruining my life. I'm always so sad. I want to have a healthly sexual relationship with my boyfriend. Without the doubts and fears and embarassment that plagues every encounter.
My dysphoria has become debilitating, and I really just don't know what else to do. To those that donated already, thank you. Thank you so much. I still have each and every donation recorded. After I get my surgery, ALL donations from my original and this one will be thanked again. I know it didn't go where we wanted it too, but your donation still helped me live. It saved me, honestly. I thank you for that.
I now have concrete details on what I need to do. My insurance will cover most of what I need as now MA state insurance covers most of this. The problem is that there are no Doctors in Mass that do the surgery. I'd have to get coverage (likely with Christine McGinn) for the hospital bill, then I need the other amount in cash to pay the surgeons fee, which isn't covered. After there is a chance my insurace will reimburse the money to me. That isn't a guarantee. I already got my doctors notes, and I'm back on track with my food assistance, and I'm looking into working again as well. I will be putting my OWN money into this gofund me as well.
Gofund me takes 7.9% and 0.30 cents on each donation. I did the math and 12k should cover what I need after thier cut.
I know it is asking a lot, but please help me out. I need this. I can't live like this anymore.
Thank you for your consideration.
