Life saving surgery

As you may or may not know, I've struggled with my weight since I was a little kid. It wasn't a matter of my parents overfeeding me or me eating whatever whenever I felt like it. It was partially genetic, partially hormonal, and partially just how I was. I have tried every single fad diet & pill out there. I will lose some weight and then even though I continue doing all the right things, it comes back on. I have Hashimotos disease, which affects my thyroid, and PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) which is a hormonal disease that affects many things including my weight. At 31 years old I have finally decided enough is enough, I am tired of not being able to lose weight and I am going to do something permanent. I have decided to have Weight Loss Surgery, unfortunately it is not something I can do in the US because of the astronomical cost that my insurance won't cover. Starting cost for gastric bypass in the US is $25,000. I have done my research and have found reputable doctors in Mexico that have high success rates with their weight loss surgery. Any amount you can help with, will help me. I will be out of work for up to a month and the cost of the surgery alone is over 5 grand. Please consider donating, even a dollar.
