Foster's Surgery Fund

My name is Foster, and for those of you who don’t know me, I’m a 23 year old trans male from Sydney, Australia. I began my medical transition (HRT) in November 2015, and am hoping to have top surgery performed in early December 2016.

This surgery will allow me to swim and be shirtless with out feeling ‘wrong’, it will give me freedom from wearing a tight binder every day, and most importantly it will allow me to look at my body and feel a connection to what I see.

Finalising my first consultation with Andrew Ives to perform the surgery was elating. This was finally becoming something tangible. Unfortunately, my celebrations were short lived as I realised that the cost of the surgery would be an unavoidable obstacle in beginning my journey. I hesitated in starting a fundraiser, as I’m often not comfortable asking for help. However, as it would be near impossible for me to raise over $9000 whilst also studying full time, I am willing to step out of my comfort zone for the purpose of something so important to me.

I humbly ask for your help in securing a gender-affirming step in my transition, top surgery.
