Hi, my name is Cole. I am a single parent to 2 beautiful children, full-time retail employee, and I am also trans! My pronouns are he/they. I am transmasculine non-binary, which means, for me personally, I identify closer to the "man" end of the binary spectrum.
I am getting top surgery this year (double mastectomy). My consultation is on June 16th, and my surgery will soon follow. My out-of-pocket cost for the surgery is $3,900 after insurance. I will also have to take at least a month off of work. My monthly bills add up to $1,100. I have also added a $500 cushion to my goal for gofundme's fees, totalling $5,500.
Top surgery is vitally important for me and my mental health and wellbeing. Being a single parent working in retail, I cannot afford this surgery on my own. I am so excited that I have the opportunity to get this surgery and I appreciate anything you are able to contribute! I will add an update with my surgery date as soon I have my consultation.
