Help A Teen Trans Girl Cover the Cost of FFS

Hey everyone! My name is Alex and i’m a 16 year old trans girl(she/her) living with my family in New York in a small town.  I always had a hard time to express myself as a child from society and being an identical twin with my brother. From those standards I always knew i was a girl but didn’t know how to express that and threw those feelings away and finally love myself for who i am. My family and I are working to get me on estrogen or hrt(hormone replacement therapy). My dysphoria is like fighting a brick wall, it has become overwhelmingly mentally  draining, and some days its hard to get out of bed or do daily activities, and with this surgery, FFS or Facial Feminization Surgery is to many people outside of the trans community as just a cosmetic surgery. But to me it is so much more than that just a cosmetic surgery. This surgery is to help me to ease the pain of my dysphoria that follows me everyday. It won’t %100 cure my dysphoria that lurks around me everyday but will help me a ton to get me to the face and body I know I earn. This surgery is not urgent but necessary for me to be comfortable for who I am.  It’s just so hard to see myself for who I am and it destroys my heart to see who i’m not. I DO NOT expect everyone to see this donate but if even $1 is donated I will forever be grateful for you to helping me in my journey to transition into the face and body i see on the inside <3
