Help me afford facial surgery

Dear friends, 

My name is Olivia and I am a 25 year old transgender women who has been medically transitioning (taking Estrogen and Testosterone blockers) for the best part of 2 years. I'm currently on disability benefits as I am also autistic: or on the autism spectrum and I need help with covering the costs for Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS). I'm sure many of you are aware of the NHS trans healthcare doesn't fund FFS for transgender patients who were assigned male at birth as this is considered a "cosmetic" procedure by the NHS despite the dysphoria and distress that having "male puberty" induced traits can cause, which are irreversible even by taking estrogen.  

Funds would be used to help cover the cost towards the area's around my face that would need treating the most like the Hairline, forehead and the Adams apple  which I feel are most prominent  area's that are preventing me from passing. 

I need the funds as soon as possible. Living in the this world as a non passing trans women is having a huge impact on my mental health and well being. Any support given whether big or small would be greatly appreciated. Support from trans and cis allies who can help financially would also be hugely welcome.
