the surgeons were originally quoting me 6-8 months later surgery date than expected because of COVID-19 and the lack of beds. however, they called me last week and informed me that a space has opened up for me in the next coming month. this surgery is something that i've been waiting for my whole life but haven't been able to accomplish due to lack of funds. i was working a ft job pre pandemic but was let go because of covid. it's been hard for me to save up for this surgery while having to survive on my own and simultaneously facing transphobic/racial discrimination in my last two work places with one resulting in me getting fired for addressing the transphobia i was facing.
This fund was created in order to pay for my surgery and 2 months of rent for recovery as recovery can take up to 3-4weeks where my mouth will be closed shut with metal plates and I will have to be bed ridden for the first little bit. A second procedure will be performed by the same doctor which is a gender affirming surgery which will allow me to partially alleviate my gender dysphoria.
The pre surgery appointment is on October 2nd and that’s when the full amount of $10,300 needs to be paid in person!
Surgery - $10,300
4 months Rent - $3,840
recovery funds for food, nurses, transportation to and from hospital etc. - $3,000
Racialized trans women of color deserve to live long, healthy and prosperous lives. Please help me in making this come true for me by donating or sharing!
