Elli's Transition Surgery

Hello. A little over 6 months ago, I came out to the world as transgender (here's my explanation of why I'm transitioning).

I knew that transitioning would be very expensive. Hormones, facial hair removal, make-up, clothes, voice training lessons, legal name/gender change, etc. add up to thousands of dollars. These are costs that I can handle on my own, if I'm patient, careful and make sacrifices. But there's one cost that I can't handle on my own. Facial feminization surgery.

I'm incredibly lucky that my province will cover gender reassignment surgery (that's the one between my legs) when the time comes, but there's no coverage for face reconstruction and since drawing a comic offers no medical, I'm kinda stuck.

I know that I have no right to ask for help with this, but saving up this kind of money is not something I can do, with my income. However, if your help can maybe get me closer to that scary goal, more payment options become possible for me. Maybe I can save up a small chunk of it and take out a small loan for the rest or something.

Before transitioning, I was able to bury my gender related self hatred, deep in the ground. Transitioning has allowed me to dig it up and start dealing with it, but that means the parts I've yet to deal with, have sunlight shining on them and that makes them unbearable. I have no emotional ground to hide them in. This is something that I can't fix on my own and it's something I can no longer live with.

So even though I have no business asking for your help and doing so will bring me some understandable hate, I'm desperate. Any help you can offer, means the world.

Thank you so much.
