Help Bex Get Top Surgery!
Hello friend! First of all, I'm sure this isn't the first, and it certainly won't be the last top surgery fundraiser that will come across your feed this week, so thanks for stopping by! The queer community has a rich history of coming together to support one another to make things happen in a world where the odds are often against us, and now it's my turn to pass the hat. I've been on the waiting list for top surgery with Dr. Rachel Bluebond-Langner at NYU since June of 2018, and despite a few setbacks I'm excited to say that my surgery date is officially scheduled for October 14th, 2019! I'm lucky enough to have insurance that covers a portion of the procedure, but thanks to copays, co-insurance, a deductible, and some other insurance related jargon I don't fully understand (which is 100% by design by the way), I'll owe about $4,500 out of pocket for the surgery itself. I hope to be able to contribute about $2,000 of my own money, and I'm asking for help to raise an additional $3,000 to cover the medical expenses and other incidentals - like Uber rides to and from post-op appointments and supplies for my recovery. I know we're all struggling, but even a few dollars will help make this process a whole hell of a lot less stressful for me. If you can't swing it right now, I totally understand, capitalism's a bitch. Even sharing this fundraiser with your network is a huge help! Thanks for being great! Bex Bake Sale! If you know me, you know how much I love to bake, and I'd love to make something just for you! Donate $50 or more and I'll make you your very own care package of Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lemon Drop Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, or Brownies as a thank you! Just email BexCaputo (at) gmail (dot) com with the name you donated under and your sweets-of-choice and I'll get baking. I have less experience baking for dietary restrictions, but I can absolutely find vegan or gluten free options if you need. If you're local I'm happy to find somewhere to meet up and deliver them personally, if you live outside NYC, let me know your zip code and I can give you a quote for shipping.+ Read More
