Dylan's Top Surgery Fund

Hello all!  My name is Dylan Ridler, I'm 22 and identify as ftm (female-to-male) transgender. I struggled with my identity for a long time, but I was able to come to terms with it, and come out, a few years ago. Since then, I have tried to the best of my ability to live as authentically as I can, being as true to myself as possible. In terms of my transition, I have been on hormones for just over a year, and absolutely loving all the changes that have come with that. That being said, my chest is still a massive cause of problems for me. Some of the time I am able to ignore my breasts, but more often than not, being in a tight binder all the time doesn't make that easy. The dysphoria my chest causes me can often lead me to high levels of anxiety and depression, only made harder by the fact that I now pass as male, therefore there is a pressure I feel to bind whenever I am not at home.  My original plan was to get top surgery covered by the NHS, but I recently found out that the wait list has gone up to four years, and I've already been waiting two. I don't think I'd survive waiting another two years, if I'm honest.  I don't currently have a date set for surgery, but I do have a consultation scheduled. This surgery is going to have to be paid out of pocket so any donations anyone could make would be really appreciated. If you aren't in a position to make a donation, then maybe you could help by sharing my link.  Thank you so much for any and all support!
