Jai’s Surgery Fund

Hi, i hope you’re doing well! My name is Jaicob, i am FtM Transgender and i am 20 years old. I have been on hormones since 24/02/2020, and it has shown me how much i needed to transition to feel like myself.  Due to personal circumstances regarding my family, i had to put off my name change until the beginning of this year instead of January 2017 when i originally ordered my Deed Polls. a 3 year wait, it felt like hell... But im finally getting to where i need to be. I have been binding since i could get a binder, secretly. It led to some disagreements but its what i needed. My chest dysphoria is something that has stopped me from being able to do alot of things in my life, one of those being: travelling and making memories. I dont think i can do that to my full potential without this life affirming surgery. So, some info about me: I love music, singing, animals, dinosaurs, you name it... I am a 1st year Psychology with Counselling student at Nottingham Trent University. And I know that i am going to struggle to make up the funds for this vital surgery. But i will keep trying to make up funds for my surgery. But at this rate, i will be done with University before i get the chance... I have applied for some jobs but have have had no luck, due to the virus and having no previous experience, but i will keep trying to get a job for next year. I am still looking for part time work on top of my studies but it is proving difficult. With being a student, my spare money is already very limited but i am saving what i can when i can, and seeing what of the little i own i can sell to raise more money and downsize. I have always struggled asking for people to help me, especially when it comes to money, but i dont know what to do and I know that i cannot fully be happy until i feel complete which is why i have resorted to this. As i am from the UK and have transitioned fully privately due to the NHS waiting lists being SO LONG, i hope to go with Miles Berry, because aesthetics are important to me too, but i will look into surgeons obviously. The cost for Top Surgery with him would probably cost me around £7000 to £8000, which right now seems like a pipe dream... But i am trying my hardest to save. but im scared it will take too long yanno Thank you taking the time to read this. It means the world to me ❤️ Best Wishes, Jaicob
