Help a silly Bear get trans affirming care

Donation protected
Hello there, my name is Bear and I’m a disabled queer and trans non binary person.
Im fundraising for trans affirming care, specifically top surgery. 

I have been out as non binary for over 4 years now and have not been able to get any trans affirming care to help deal with dysphoria and body dysmorphia. 
I have been dealing as best I can with regular therapy but that doesn’t take away the pain of feeling wrong. No amounts of shaving my head or binding are enough. 

I have been binding my chest for a while now but due to my health declining and slowly becoming disabled, I am unable to bind most days, which causes a lot of distress. It has also been proven that binding regularly/daily can result in lasting health issues. 

The NHS situation in the UK means that if I was to wait to get care on the nation health service I could be waiting over 5 years. If I was to try and get the surgery I need in the uk with a private surgeon it could cost me over £10,000. This is a cost I fear I would never be able to raise enough funds for, I am currently living off universal credit after losing my job early this year. I have fibromyalgia, scoliosis and several other health issues that have made it impossible to return to a full time and part time job. 

Therefore I have been looking overseas to get the procedure I am looking for, which is much cheaper, less ableist, fatphobic and transphobic. 

Currently this figure of £5000 would cover my surgery, travel and recovery costs.
Any help big or small would hugely help and be incredibly appreciated!

Thank you for reading and have a beautiful day x
