Help Theo raise funds for top surgery

My name is Theo and I am a transgender man. Due to the unfortunate state of transgender health care in the UK, I am facing a 3+ year wait for my first appointment at the Sandyford gender indentity clinic in Glasgow. With the current pandemic, the waiting list has become even longer. I have therefore started my medical transition privately until I am able to get the care that I need through the NHS. This began with me starting testosterone HRT on 23rd June 2020. This treatment has been life changing for me, and I am already feeling so much more comfortable in my body and a weight has been lifted off my chest. Unfortunately, I still need to get something else off my chest... my chest itself.

I have never felt comfortable having breasts, ever since I started to develop them. I figured that everyone felt this way and it was just part of going through female puberty, but this feeling has persisted into the present. When I figured out that I was transgender and that medical treatment was available to me to transition, I knew that I needed top surgery. Since starting testosterone, I have begun the steps I need to take to get my surgery, which is scheduled for the 22nd June 2021, but there are costs to this process that I am unfortunately unable to meet on my own. I am currently working full time to save money for my surgery and other transition related costs, but as it is a fixed term contract, it is not a permanent source of income. I have listed my transition related costs that I am raising money for below.

Already taken place:

Consultation for top surgery with Mr Kneeshaw: £165
Consultation for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria and gender incongruence with Dr Beaini : £300

Ongoing/upcoming:

Top surgery with Mr Kneeshaw (including aftercare): £7650
Subscription to private gender clinic: £30 monthly
Prescription for testosterone gel: £40 monthly

I would be extremely grateful for any donations people can make to help me achieve my goal. Transitioning is life saving for transgender people, and I can already feel the mental and physical health benefits of just a few months on HRT. Top surgery will also make a huge difference to my life and health, and any support I can get will help to make it happen.
