My name is Emmalaine R. Rutherford-Xo, though many of you may know me as Emma Seckso. You may also know my friend and companion, Fellow the Giraffe.

Since March 1st 2018, I have been on a very important and often perilous journey. The path since December 29, 2020 has been especially treacherous. While I am not able to share specifics at this time, please know I do not make this request lightly.

Out of financial necessity, I have primarily worked alone. It has been daunting and often frightening journey. While I have often felt helpless, I have never lost hope.

I have had many victories and far exceeded the expectations of everyone involved, including my own.

However, I now stand at a point in my journey where it would be very dangerous to proceed without the aide of a professional. This is a moment, regardless of the outcome, that will affect the rest of my life. [Fellow: “ahem”] Oh, of *our* lives.

I am exhausted; physically, mentally, and emotionally, but I will never give up. I continue to fight because I know I have the truth. I fight for love. And love wins. Love always wins.

If you are not able to help with direct financial assistance at this time, please share this campaign, use the hashtag #fightforfellow, and send positive vibes and words of encouragement my way.

The total above is likely on the low-end of what I truly need. In the event that there are contributions that exceed my needs, any excess will be split evenly to Prism Health North Texas and Transgender Education Network of Texas.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my very being for your time, continued support, and most of all love.

Say it with me: LOVE WINS.
