help a black trans boy escape abusive mother

This GFM is for Raien Ilona, a transgender gay man living with an emotionally abusive mom. My mom is doing anything she can to not let me move away when I'm 18 like hiding security documents, filming me almost constantly, recording my conversations, lying to police that I'm a danger, keeping me from receiving mental health treatment, putting me into debt by not paying my bills, repeatedly telling me how slow/crazy/useless I am and that I will never be able to live by myself. I have gotten jobs but every time she keeps me from following through and hides the papers needed then even if I get money, she still takes it from me.

I also suffer from an autoimmune disease that effects my lungs, making them grow at a smaller rate so they are not fit for a person of my development. My mother is aware of this, yet she doesn't take me to the doctors nor pay for prescriptions, my respirator, etc. I also suffer from heart issues like irregular heartbeat, constant light-headedness, swollen ribs, etc which my mother is also aware of yet will not take me to the doctors. I fear for my health and need to leave this house as soon as I can. I also have medical bills that need to be paid. Please, please donate, anything helps to get me food, housing, transportation, basic medical care, etc. for when I move out next year.

I appreciate anyone who helps in any way that they are able and I will be forever grateful for each and every person who helps support me to a happier life.
