Ray's Top Surgery Fund

Hey hey its Ray or you also may know me as Rexxie. In 2010 I starting actively noticing that I felt confused about my gender identity. "Why do I feel different?" "I must be the only one who feels like this." "Why do I not identify with the sex I was assigned with at birth?" These were legitmate concerns and thoughts I had. Back then I didn't know anyone personally who felt this way. I became curious and I started researching. "Not identifying as anything" turned into "null gender",  which turned into "neutrois", "agender", and so on. Finally clarity! I finally had a solid answer to what I was feeling. I discovered that I was nonbinary transgender. Years went by and I lived in a closed bubble. I didn't openly discuss my gender identity with anyone but my step mother. I constantly felt (and still feel) uncomfortable in my own skin. I felt like since my identity wasn't common that I would be a burden. I didn't want anyone going out of their way for me. Around 2014 I couldn't handle it anymore and came out. I asked those who were close to me to use my preferred pronouns and to use a name that I was comfortable with. But that still wasn't enough. I was (and still am) constantly depressed about my appearance. That's when I decided to start seeing a gender therapist. In 2017 I was officially diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria.  Even before the start of my gender identity journey I wanted top surgery. My breasts weigh me down, hurt me, make my life a living hell, and thats all wrapped up in a horrible gender dysphoria sundae. On top of all of this, I've been actively binding for about 3 years. My ribs are tender and becoming bruised. Getting my top surgery will allow me freedom and comfort physically too. My therapist is in the process of writing my letter, which gives the surgeon the go ahead to perform my surgery. BIG PROBLEM: My insurance will NOT cover the surgery. Its been a long back and forth with my insurance company, and today they officially confirmed that none of the procedure would be covered. Insurance offered to send me a list of general surgeons, but top surgery is something that NEEDS to be performed by a specialist! Any regular surgeon isn't going to cut it (no pun intended) The surgeon I would need to go to: Dr. Beverly Fischer https://www.beverlyfischer.net/gender-affirmation-center/ Please click the links below to see the emails had with the surgeon's office. Costs are listed! Top Surgery Email #1 Top Surgery Email #2 The surgeon does offer CareCredit, but unfortunately I was declined due to my Credit history "not being old enough". I've been saving up little bits from each of my paycheck but I can only do so much. I'll be adding to this whenever I can! My friends convinced me to make this, so here's hoping to future body positivity  TLDR: I'm nonbinary trans-masculine and want my boobs chopped off. Please help me achieve my goal.
